Hamas Sentences 6 To Death For Collaborating With Israel

CNN cuts ties with commentator Marc Lamont Hill after his public support of Palestinian rights

The UN General Assembly is scheduled to vote on Thursday to a US draft resolution that condemns Hamas movement for firing rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

Nasser Suleiman of the Hamas-run military judiciary corporation told reporters that six were sentenced to death, including a woman, and seven others were sentenced from 6 to 15 years of imprisonments and hard labor.

The woman, named "Amal", is not a Gaza resident and was sentenced to hanging in absentia for helping to recruit her nephew, who lives in the strip, to the Israeli intelligence service.

Six Hamas members were killed when the device apparently exploded after detection near Deir al-Balah in central Gaza in May.

While the law requires that the PA president - now Mahmoud Abbas, who is based in the West Bank - ratify all death sentences before they be carried out, according to human rights organisation B'Tselem, at least 97 people have been sentenced to death and 33 have been executed in the Gaza Strip since 2007.

The execution of the death sentences in Gaza takes place in spite of legal disputes over the matter.

According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, 28 executions have been carried out in Gaza since Hamas seized control of the coastal enclave in 2007 from rival faction Fatah.

Faqha was one of the leaders of Hamas' armed wing, Ezzeddine al-Qassam, and was assassinated in in the Gaza Strip in late March 2017. Hamas says the defendants were implicated in previous incidents.
