Amnesty International has documented egregious human rights abuses committed by the terror group Hamas against its own citizens. The report, Strangling Necks’: Abduction, Torture and Summary Killings of Palestinians by Hamas Forces During the 2014 Gaza/Israel Conflict documents incidences of Hamas's torture and murder of Palestinians during last summers' conflict
Those targeted by Hamas included members of the Fatah party and people accused of "collaborating" with Israel. 23 Palestinians were shot and killed by Hamas. 6 of them were publicly executed. 3 others died in custody shortly after their arrest. Dozens more were arrested and tortured.
According to Amnesty International:
Many of the arrests looked more like abductions – with armed men in civilian clothes,
sometimes masked, who did not present identification or a legal basis for arrest, forcing the
suspects into a car and taking them to locations unknown to their families. The suspects
would often be beaten in the car and the beatings would continue at the place of detention
and during the interrogation.
Testimonies gathered by Amnesty indicate that victims of torture were beaten with truncheons,
gun butts, hoses, wire, and fists. Others were also burnt with fire, hot metal or acid.
