Hamas executes 'collaborators', Israeli boyHamas executed 18 alleged collaborators in Gaza City on Friday as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed harsh retribution for the killing of a four-year-old boy by Palestinian mortar fire. The escalating bloodshed has seen another 79 Palestinians die in Gaza and wounded nine Israeli civilians, one of them critically, since hostilities resumed on Tuesday after the collapse of truce talks and nine days of calm. Israel has vowed no let-up until it can guarantee the safety of its civilians, and Hamas insists that Israel end an eight-year blockade on the tiny, overpopulated Palestinian coastal enclave it controls. At least 2,095 Palestinians have been killed since July 8, of whom the United Nations has identified 70 percent as civilians, and 68 people have died on the Israeli side, all but four of them soldiers.
