Islamic Hamas Movement who dominates Gaza strip, Tuesday (9/11), said he had sentenced three people to death. Two of them were punished for cooperating with the enemy Israel.
The Hamas military court said the recent decision included three death sentences. Two of them are collaborators linked to the occupation and the third is a drug trafficker.
The court also ruled in 11 other cases involving the same charges. All were sentenced to prison terms ranging from four years to life, except for one suspect whose drug trafficking charges were dropped.
Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in 2007 and has been ruling ever since. Therefore, Israel immediately imposed a blockade on the region.
Since then, Hamas and Israel have fought four wars: in 2008, 2012, 2014 and this year. Previously, Hamas announced at the end of October that it had sentenced them to death. six Palestinian informants for working with Israel.
The Gaza-based Al Mezan Center for Human Rights has called for a moratorium on the death penalty in the enclave. His party is very concerned about the continued death penalty imposed by military courts.
Hamas said on Tuesday that it had followed all legal procedures and granted all rights to those convicted. Palestinian law requires the approval of PA President Mahmud Abbas for the death penalty, but Hamas in Gaza has carried out a number of executions without asking for his permission. (AFP / OL-14)
