On Sunday, 6 August 2023, Gaza’s Military Court of Appeal issued five death sentences by hanging against five persons convicted of collaboration with hostile entities in violation of Article 131 of the 1979 Palestinian Revolutionary Penal Code. Specifically, with these sentences, the Military Court of Appeals increased the penalties from years in prison to death by hanging.
One week later, on Sunday, 13 August 2023, the same court issued another death sentence by hanging against a 46-year-old man convicted of collaboration with hostile entities. In this case, the sentence was increased from 15 years in prison to a death sentence.
