Gaza news agency live-streams executions

A Gaza-based news agency is live-streaming the public execution of three Palestinian men found guilty of assassinating a senior Hamas terrorist in March.

The Facebook Live video streaming from the Gaza Now news agency appears to be filmed from a balcony above the square where Ashraf Abu Leila Hisham al-Aloul and Abdallah al-Nashar are set to be executed.

Mazen Faqha, a Hamas terror chief, was shot on March 24 outside his Gaza home. Hamas accuses the three suspects of collaborating with Israel and sentenced them to death on Sunday.

Abu Leila, 38, was sentenced to hang, while al-Aloul and al-Nashar will face the firing squad.
