Hamas court sentences Palestinian to death

Hamas court sentences Palestinian to deathGaza, March 25 - A Hamas military court has handed down the death sentence to a Palestinian convict in the Gaza Strip for collaborating with Israel, a media report said.

The sentence came just days after Hamas authorities in Gaza launched a campaign to fight collaboration, urging spies to turn themselves in for amnesty, Xinhua reported.

A source said the sentenced collaborator had not turned himself in during a similar campaign launched in 2010.

Since taking over Gaza in 2007, Hamas, a rival to Fatah which controls the West Bank, has executed 14 people, most of them collaborators, the report said.

In November 2012, Hamas executed seven Palestinians in public. (IANS)
