Hamas executes 11-18 'collaborators' UPDATED x2 WITH PHOTOShere), as it continues to kill people whom it is afraid 'know too much.'
In a central venue in Gaza City on Friday morning, 11 local Arab residents who were charged with "collaborating with Israel" were publicly executed by Hamas, according to the Arabic-language Al-Rai news agency as cited by Walla!.
However, Hamas TV reported that the number of those executed actually consisted of 18 men. Six of those executed were shot dead in front of a mosque by men in Hamasmilitary uniforms, witnesses told AFP.
Hamas's cynical disregard for its own citizens, openly displayed by fighting while embedded in civilian infrastructure and using human shields, has not spared "Hamas collaborators" either.
A Hamas spokesperson recently told Al Jazeera that since Operation Pillar of Defense ended in 2012, "hundreds of our men were martyred digging the tunnels during the previous lull period."
Many of those who survived digging the terror tunnels did not meet a better end than their "martyred" companions; according to reports, in recent weeks Hamas has executed dozens of the diggers to make absolutely certain they would not reveal information about the locations in which they were digging.
Of the hundreds who died in the digging, "at least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels" according to the Journal of Palestine Studies in 2012, indicating how Hamas had no qualms about lethally manipulating child labor.But just give them a 'state' and I'm sure they'll stop behaving like this. /sarc
