It seems that Hamas has been observing the most recent ceasefire and things have become quieter, but it’s only a week or so ago that 18 people were executed by Hamas for allegedly collaborating with the “enemy” (some reports give a number of 22 victims). What were the collaborators guilty of?
Maybe the following news report gives an indication.
Trapped in Gaza: How Hamas punishes reporters for the truth

THE AUSTRALIAN – JULY 31, 2014
HAMAS is not just targeting Israeli civilians, threatening Gazans and using them as humans shields.
It has another terror tactic: intimidating foreign journalists.
Journalists who have taken pictures of Hamas operatives preparing to shoot rockets from civilian structures and/or fighting in civilian clothing have been threatened by Hamas operatives and had their equipment confiscated.
Reporter Peter Stefanovic, of the Nine Network’s news, stationed in Gaza, received a surge of abuse and threats when he tweeted that he had seen rockets fired into Israel from near his hotel, in a civilian area.
Pro-Hamas tweeters said Stefanovic was “passing and fabricating information to Israel … from GAZA”. Another account wrote: “You are a cretin. Are you working for the IDF” and “in WWII spies got shot”.
