Gaza City - Hamas’s deputy leader has condemned the “unlawful” killing of six Palestinians in the Gaza Strip who were suspected of giving information to Israel.

Moussa Abu Marzouk, in comments posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday, urged the Islamist Hamas administration ruling Gaza to ensure that no one takes the law into their own hands.

“Punishing collaborators and especially those involved in the killing of our leaders must only be carried out in accordance with the law and through the legal procedures,” Abu Marzouk said.

Citing an unidentified security source, Hamas’s al-Aqsa radio station said the six men were shot dead on Tuesday after being “caught red-handed” working for Israel, which has battered Gaza with air strikes for the past eight days in an offensive it says is meant to stop rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave.

“They possessed hi-tech equipment and filming equipment to take footage of positions,” al-Aqsa radio station said.

Gunmen chained the body of one of the alleged collaborators to a motorcycle and dragged it throughout the main streets of Gaza City. At least one body was beaten, kicked and trampled.

Troubled by graphic photographs and footage of the incident, Abu Marzouk added: “The way those collaborators were killed and the images after their death were completely unacceptable.”

“Those who did it should be punished and it must not be repeated,” said the Hamas official, who is currently in Cairo.

Wow since when do they follow legal proceedings and do things by law, looks like throwing rockets on civilians and bombing bus crowded with children is according law

The images getting out to western news sources was the troubling part for this Hamas animal, and I am sorry to insult most animals by comparing a Hamas Muslim Arab to them. Daisy cutter bombs for Gaza=No more missiles

Well the guy certainly has a sense for what PR is all about. So dragging one dead man through the street is completely unacceptable but sending thousand of rockets to kill and maim civilians is praiseworthy. Sorry , I forgot those being bombed are Jews.

AHHHHHH, these civilized Islamic people that you cry about to the media. Yes, yes, Israel is soooooooo wrong for defending themselves against them!!!! Please please go on more TV broadcasts and make fools of yourselves some more. I love watching you complain how Israel is striking back at you for starting this war. That is the usual complaint for decades. I just want to hand you a lolly when you guys do that. "We started up with Israel, now they are punishing us, that's not fair!!!! Boo hoo"

Of all the enemies Jews had to deal with, the Gaza Palestinians are the most insane. They are so insane that the UN Security Council has not condemned Israel this time around. Not even the Arab nations are condemning Israel - and not even Iran, home of Haman the Second.
Hamas is demanding that Israel lift its blockade of Gaza as a condition for a truce. What is Israel blockading? Food? Electronics? No ! It is blockading more rockets for Hamas to shoot into Israel !
Having insane enemies has both a bad side and good side. The bad side is they are virulently hateful. The good side is they don't know how to manage a war whenever they start one.
