A Palestinian family in the Gaza Strip said it had killed a relative who helped Israel track down and kill three senior Hamas militants, including one of the man’s own kinsmen.
In a statement, the family of Ahmed Barhoum said it had shot him in the city of Rafah after they were told by a militant group that he had provided information to Israel.
This guided an Israeli air strike during the 2014 Gaza war that targeted the Hamas militants.
The family said they had listened to their relative’s confession and seen the evidence against him.
The Barhoums are one of Rafah’s largest families and well known for their closeness to Palestinian militant groups at odds with Israel.
