Masked killers shot to death six men suspected of collaborating with Israel. The Hamas terrorist organization currently in control of the Gaza Strip claimed responsibility for the killings at a busy intersection in Gaza City. Witnesses at the scene claim that six men were pulled from a van during the afternoon hours on November 19 as onlookers yelled “Spy! Spy!”. Forced to lie face down in the street, the six men were shot to death. The bodies were piled on the street as a mob stomped and kicked the alleged informers. One body was dragged behind a motorcycle. Hamas posted a sign on a nearby utility pole that named the alleged collaborators.
