    Gaza's Hamas rulers on Saturday executed a Palestinian convicted of collaborating with Israel and two others deemed complicit in murder, an interior ministry statement said.

    In March, a military court in Gaza condemned to death a 27-year-old Palestinian convicted of "treason" for allegedly cooperating with Israel, but did not publish his name.

    Since the start of this year, the authorities in Gaza have announced two other death sentences, one against a man convicted of collaborating with Israel and the other found guilty of killing his brother.

    It was not clear if either or both of those were hanged on Saturday.

    Under Palestinian law, collaboration with Israel, murder and drug trafficking are all punishable by death.

    All execution orders must be approved by the Palestinian president before they can be carried out, but Hamas no longer recognises the legitimacy of Mahmud Abbas, whose four-year term ended in 2009.

    In recent months, Hamas has arrested several alleged collaborators, and warned it would prosecute any "traitor" working for the Jewish state.

    Gang law is the rule of Arabics. I laugh at all the people crying about Israel not wanting the Palestinians there. Frankly, I think they show great restraint by not booting every last one of them out of their midst.
