Gaza court issues death sentence to suspected collaborator

Dec. 5, 2013 5:20 P.M. (Updated: June 23, 2015 2:06 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A military court in the Gaza Strip on Thursday sentenced a man to death by hanging.

The Hamas-run court found the man - identified only as A.K. - guilty of collaborating with Israeli authorities, without providing further details.

On June 22, the Gaza government hanged two men accused of collaborating with Israel. Under Palestinian law, collaboration with Israel and murder are punishable by death.

However all execution orders must be approved by the president before they can be carried out. Hamas no longer recognizes the legitimacy of incumbent Mahmoud Abbas, whose four-year term ended in 2009.

Hamas has executed 17 people since taking over Gaza in 2007, according to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.
