On Friday morning, pro-Hamas media reported that 11 suspected Israeli collaborators were executed at Gaza City police headquarters. After Friday midday prayers, an additional seven suspected collaborators were killed in a public execution in central Gaza. 

The victims, who had their heads covered and hands tied, were shot by masked Hamas gunmen in front of a crowd of worshippers outside of a mosque, the pro-Hamas website al-Majd said. An additional photograph posted on a pro-Hamas Palestinian Facebook page showed a crowd outside the mosque awaiting the executions.
