Six Palestinians sentenced to death in Gaza over spying for Israel

Six Palestinians sentenced to death in Gaza over spying for Israel

A Hamas-controlled military court on Monday sentenced six Palestinians to death for allegedly collaborating with Israel.

According to Gaza's interior ministry, a total of 14 people were sentenced for "collaborating with the occupation", with six sentenced to be hanged and the rest sentenced to hard labor.

The three parties helped Israel and Hamas agree to a ceasefire last month after Hamas launched almost 500 rockets at Israel from the costal enclave.

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.

Khalil al-Hayya, member of Hamas politburo, told a conference held in Gaza in support for Jerusalem that "our Egyptian brothers presented a new vision to end the internal split and achieve reconciliation and meet the factions' requirements".

RBI keeps interest rates unchanged
Barring large unexpected developments, we expect the RBI to remain in the pause mode for the reminder of FY19. If the prevailing SLR is 20% then they will have to invest Rs 200 in Government Securities.

The Hamas spokesperson further stated, "Collaborators must realize the (Israeli) occupation will not be able to protect them". Yet a proposed United Nations resolution, advanced by the USA, condemning Hamas's use of civilians as human shields, has prompted the PA to rush to its rival's defense. The commander of the undercover Israeli force was also killed after the operation was uncovered.

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

A senior Fatah official stated that the unity displayed by Fatah and Hamas on this issue reflects the fact that Fatah reserves for itself the option of returning in the future to the "armed struggle" against Israel if there is no significant breakthrough in the deadlocked diplomatic process, and it will ally itself to Hamas through "resistance" (meaning terror).

Hamas says the defendants were implicated in previous incidents.
