A Hamas military court announced on Tuesday that two Gazans had been sentenced to death for allegedly collaborating with Israel, raising the total number of death sentences for suspected Israeli spies in Gaza to eight in the past month alone. The two accused were both sentenced to death by hanging. The Hamas military judiciary identified them as residents of Gaza City aged 57 and 46. A third Palestinian man was sentenced to death for drug dealing, Hamas judicial officials said in a statement. Another 11 Palestinians were handed various prison sentences for drug trafficking and spying for Israel, although officials did not specify how many were convicted of each offense.

The Hamas terror group has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007, when it took over the enclave in a bloody coup from its rival, the Palestinian Authority. The Islamists have since dealt harshly with those accused of being Israeli spies. Based on figures from the B’Tselem rights group and including the fresh cases, some 15 death sentences have been issued this year. At least one of the defendants was tried in absentia.
