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, the interior ministry in Gaza said.
The six sentenced to death Monday were not related to the November 11 flare-up. The woman, named only as Amal, was sentenced in absentia and is alleged to have encouraged her nephew in Gaza to collaborate with Israeli intelligence.
Iyad al-Bozum, the spokesman of the interior ministry in Hamas-ruled Gaza, hailed the rulings. "Collaborators must realise the (Israeli) occupation will not be able to protect them," he told a news conference.
