Hamas kills 11 people suspected of being informers to Israel

Hamas media outlets said Friday that the terrorist organization has killed 11 people suspected of being informants to Israel. The informants were killed at the Gaza City police headquarters, according to a Gaza security member.

The announcement comes after an Israeli airstrike in Gaza killed three Hamas leaders earlier this week. To find the Hamas leaders, Israel "likely relied to some extent on local informers," The Associated Press says.

Hamas website Al Rai said the 11 suspected informants were shot by a firing squad, and "the same punishment will be imposed soon on others." The website claimed the shootings were related to Israel's killing of Hamas leaders, saying the "current circumstances forced us to take such decisions." --Meghan DeMaria
