Masked Hamas gunman killed seven of the Palestinians in front of worshippers at the Omari mosque in Palestine Square. It is reported that this is the first public execution in the enclave since the 1990s. The other 11 Palestinians were killed at an abandoned police station near Gaza City.

“The resistance has begun an operation called ‘strangling the necks’, targeting collaborators who aid the (Israeli) occupation, kill our people and destroy houses,” said Al-Majd, a website run by Hamas’s internal security service.
 
The Palestinian Center for Human Rights responded to the killings: “We demand the Palestinian National Authority and the resistance (Palestinian armed factions) to intervene to stop these extra-judicial executions, no matter what the reasons and motives are,” said Raji al-Surani, the chairman of the Center for Human Rights.
 
Hamas has a long track record of human rights violations, even killing over 150 children during their tunnel construction earlier this summer.
 
The was raged on this week after a 10-day ceasefire fell through earlier in the week. Israel launched more than 25 air strikes into Gaza. Four people were killed. Gaza launched about 60 rockets into Israel, wounding about five people.
 
Senior Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyeh said that his group would not budge from its demands.”We will not accept anything less than an end to the (Israeli) aggression and an end to the blockade,” Haniyeh said in a statement posted by Al Rai. “Anyone involved in cease-fire efforts must understand that our people will not accept anything less than this.”

More than 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the fighting so far. Sixty-four Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel have also been killed in the violence.
