A recent ISIS video shows the execution of Musa Abu Zamat, who was once an ISIS activist but was killed for transferring arms to Hamas. In the video, both the speaker and the executioner are former Gaza residents, one saying he was the son of a senior Hamas official from al-Shati in Gaza. Al Akhbar claimed that seven more people were executed previously for the same charges.
