HEBRON, West Bank (AP) – Palestinian judges have ordered the execution of a man for collaborating with Israel.

Judges say the man provided information that helped Israeli forces kill four Palestinian militants. On Monday, they ordered he be executed by a firing squad. The order still has to be signed by the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestinians look harshly toward brethren who provide Israel with information about Palestinian militants.

Suspected collaborators are often killed vigilante-style. Still, it has been years since a collaborator was tried and sentenced to death.
