Hamas executes its leader on suspicion of spying

GAZA CITY: The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has reportedly executed its former spokesperson Ayman Taha on suspicion of spying for Egypt.


Taha was found dead in his apartment in northeast Gaza while according to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds, he was executed for maintaining contact with intelligence services in Egypt and other Arab countries as well as for financial corruption.

Earlier, initial reports said that Taha was killed when Israeli forces targeted him in the apartment where he was with several others in Gaza City in the Shejaiya neighbourhood.

Meanwhile on Thursday, Hamas issued a statement saying that it executed several Palestinians on charges of aiding Israeli forces.

“The spies were executed after they were caught red-handedly informing on the whereabouts of the resistance [or] disrupting the work of resistance men and defusing ambushes prepared against the enemy,” an unnamed member of the Islamist group’s security services was quoted as saying.
