Reports indicate Hamas killed 18 suspected Israeli informants following the Israeli airstrike that left three Hamas commanders dead.
Thursday an Israeli strike killed three top military officials in a home near Rafah, and it appears Hamas suspected Israel learned of their location from informants.
Witnesses say Hamas killed the suspects at an abandoned police station and outside a mosque. They also say the group dropped off some of the bodies at a hospital.
The Palestinian Center for Human Rights says two of those killed in the massacre were women.
But it appears Hamas has no plans to halt the executions, as Fox News reports Hamas media is portraying the killings "as the beginning of a new crackdown" against any enemy collaborators.
This is the third time Hamas has announced killing suspected collaborators since the outbreak of fighting six weeks ago.
