Gaza City, July 26 (IANS/AKI) Two Palestinians were hanged Tuesday for collaborating with Israel, the Hamas said.

Hamas is the Islamist movement that governs the Gaza Strip.

The two were executed after the government two weeks ago made a decision to execute Palestinians convicted of collaboration with Israel, the Hamas interior ministry said in a statement.

Since Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in June 2007, at least 15 Palestinians have been executed after being found guilty of working for Israel.

Thirteen were killed by the firing squad and two were hanged.
