Human Rights Watch on Thursday condemned Hamas, after the terrorist group executed three men in Gaza who were accused of collaborating with Israel.
In a statement quoted by AFP, the organization urged Hamas to stop the "barbaric" practice.
The executions were carried out after Hamas vowed revenge for the killing last month of one of its top terrorists, Mazen Faqha, which it blamed on the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad and its Palestinian "collaborators".
The men who were hanged on Thursday were not implicated in the killing of Faqha but were accused of past acts of "treason and collaborating," a Hamas interior ministry statement said.
In response , Human Rights Watch said, "The abhorrent executions by Hamas authorities of three men in Gaza deemed to be collaborators project weakness, not strength."
"Hamas authorities will never achieve true security or stability through firing squads or by the gallows, but rather through respect for international norms and the rule of law," it added.

The leader of Hamas told his top officer after receiving the Human Rights Watch protest, “Make a note of this”.
Human Rights Watch is a dog with no bite.
Precious little bark, either. Like bad poetry on a bad theme.
We condemn the Kossacks’ raid on Kishenev. Don’t they know that if they wave swords around in a crowded synagogue while galloping up on down the aisles, they’re liable to hurt someone?
