There’s no better way to celebrate the end Ramadan than with mass executions, or at least that’s what Hamas believes.
Timed to coincide with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr, Hamas plans to publicly execute anywhere up up to 40 people they claim are criminals, who “confessed” to their crimes after being severely tortured, according to a report in YNet. The stated goal of the executions is to help maintain public security.
The last executions in Gaza took place in June 2013, when Hamas executed two people it claimed were collaborating with Israel.
Israel on the other hand, does not execute Gazan terrorists, and instead frees them in exchange for talks with the Palestinian Authority.
