In Gaza, Hamas is singling out collaborators from within the organization for recent deadly attacks from Israel. The militant group is taking drastic steps to see to it that it doesn't happen again. A death sentence read aloud by Hamas militants. Telling this crowded mosque, "We're implementing God's judgment by executing traitors of God and country." Moments later, their justice comes swiftly, a bullet for each man. And a graphic warning for a crowd of onlookers. One that resonates with the people of Gaza. "Each spy deserves the death penalty," Abu Raed tells CNN's Ian Lee. "Without spies Israel would have no information." Hamas says at least 22 alleged collaborators have been executed since the war began. "There is a war and dangerous spies are operating in Gaza," says Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum. "They've forced us to take harsh measures in the form of executing these spies. It's to send a strong message to Israel and other spies." The militant group blames collaborators for recent Israeli airstrikes that killed three Hamas commanders in southern Gaza. Eighteen people were executed publicly the following day. "This is where those alleged collaborators were killed, you can still see the blood stained ground and a bullet whole in the wall," says CNN reporter Ian Lee. "Hamas says these are necessary actions during a time of war. But human rights groups say that it's this time, particularly, where you should lose sight of the rule of law." "They are tantamount to extrajudicial executions." Human rights advocate Hamdi Shaqqura criticizes the lack of transparency during the trials. He condemns not just public executions but every death sentence. "We are worried that more executions will be carried out in the future," Shaqqura. That's likely to happen. As the war enters its eighth week, Israeli strikes continue, so does Hamas' hunt for collaborators.
