11 alleged collaborators killed in Gaza - update 18 executed

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Eleven Palestinians were killed by Hamas on Friday for allegedly collaborating with Israel.

A Ma'an reporter said two bodies were found near the al-Azhar University in Gaza City while several others were taken to al-Shifa medical center.

Al-Ray News Agency, affiliated with Hamas, reported that 11 Palestinians were killed.

The 11 suspected collaborators were killed at a Gaza police station and had been sentenced by courts, The Associated Press reported.

A day earlier, Hamas executed three alleged collaborators with Israel and arrested seven others.

It is believed the executions and arrests took place following the assassination of three senior Hamas military commanders at dawn on Tuesday.

Information passed to Israel's security services by Palestinian collaborators is often being used to make arrests and assassinate high-profile political and militant figures.

Under Palestinian law, collaboration with Israel is punishable by death. more
