Two Palestinians suspected of collaboration with the Israel Defense Forces were killed in a gangland-style execution in Balata refugee camp near Nablus on Tuesday, witnesses said.
The two, a married woman and her lover, reportedly admitted to informing the IDF on the movements of a number of senior Fatah officials, who were assassinated by Israel over the last five years of violence.
A senior Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades official told Ynet the two admitted they had cooperated with Israel during interrogations which lasted two days.
"We issued a death sentence for the man, Mahmoud Jafala, and shot him dead before everyone, so they understand we are determined to continue investigating, finding, and assassinating everyone involved in passing on information to the enemy and aid in assassinating our heroes," the official said.
Al-Aqsa, Fatah's military wing, said Waida Abu Mustafa admitted to having informed on her husband, an al-Aqsa activist nicknamed Abu Khamis, who was assassinated by Israel.
The group said the woman wanted her husband killed in order to live with her lover.
In accordance with her family's demand, Waida was killed by her brother. Al-Aqsa gunmen were asked to have her killed by a family member to avoid unwanted Israeli attention over the assassination of an informant, the official said.
