Palestinian hanged in Gaza for collaborating with Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Palestinian man reportedly was hanged for collaborating with Israeli intelligence.

The hanging was one of three on Saturday in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Maan news agency reported, citing the Gazan interior ministry.

The man hanged for collaboration with Israel was found guilty of treason and was called a "traitor" in the interior ministry’s statement, Reuters reported. The other two men were found guilty of murder by Gaza City’s military court.

Two Palestinians were executed last summer, also on charges of collaborating with Israel.
