GAZA CITY: Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip executed three Palestinian men for murder on Tuesday, the attorney general said. The three, whose cases were unrelated, were put to death by firing squad behind closed doors, security sources said. “To achieve public deterrence, the authorities carried out on May 31, 2016 execution rulings against three of those convicted of shocking murders,” a statement from the attorney general said.
