A military court in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip on Monday sentenced six people, including a woman, to death by hanging for "collaborating" with Israel, authorities said.
In total 14 people were sentenced for "collaborating with the occupation," with six sentenced to be hanged and the rest sentenced to hard labour, the interior ministry in Gaza said.

The rulings came three weeks after eight people were killed when an alleged Israeli army cell in Gaza was uncovered on 11 November, leading to a vicious firefight.
Hamas fired hundreds of rockets at Israel in response, with the Jewish state striking dozens of targets in Gaza before a 13 November ceasefire agreement.

The six sentenced to death Monday were not directly related to the flare-up, officials said.
Iyad al-Bozum, the spokesman of the interior ministry in Gaza, told AFP they were linked "to a communications and eavesdropping device planted by the (Israeli) occupation".
Six Hamas members were killed when the device apparently exploded after detection near Deir al-Balah in central Gaza in May.
Among those sentenced was a woman living inside Israel, named only as Amal, who was sentenced in absentia and is alleged to have encouraged her nephew in Gaza to collaborate with Israeli intelligence, according to the interior ministry.
Bozum hailed the rulings as a "clear message" to those who would cooperate with Israel.
"Collaborators must realise the (Israeli) occupation will not be able to protect them," he told a news conference.

In May 2017, Hamas security forces invited journalists to attend the hanging in Gaza City of three men convicted over the assassination of a senior military commander of the Islamist movement.
During the 2014 war with Israel, a firing squad from Hamas's armed wing killed six men accused of collaborating with the Jewish state.

Israeli soldier filmed killing Palestinian released from prison

Elor Azaria was released from Israeli prison after serving nine months for shooting dead an injured Palestinian in 2016.

An Israeli soldier convicted of manslaughter for shooting dead an injured Palestinian was freed from prison on Tuesday, the army said, after spending nine months behind bars.

Elor Azaria was initially sentenced to 18 months in prison for the killing of Abdul Fatah al-Sharif in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron in March 2016. He began serving his sentence on August 9.

It showed al-Sharif, 21, lying wounded on the ground, shot along with another Palestinian after allegedly stabbing and wounding a soldier.

Around 11 minutes after the initial shooting, Azaria, a sergeant and military medic at the time of the incident, walked up to al-Sharif and shot him in the head without apparent provocation.
Seems both sides have issues with appropriate levels of punishment.

'Collaborating' with Israel and hanging them, including a woman VS shooting a piece of trash dead ..... yep, the usual Cray comparison
Yes, lets allow soldiers to execute whoever they want in a combat zone and then wonder why the conflict has lasted as long as it has.... :rolleyes:

Live by the sword, die by the sword. Don't try to kill people and then expect them to offer you lunch.

Executing collaborators was a routine activity by partisans in occupied Poland, France, Norway etc from 1939 to 1945 so why should the residents of Gaza & the West Bank be viewed any differently?
