According to the ministry, the sentences were issued with reference to Article 131 of the Palestinian Revolutionary Penal Code of 1979.

The collaborators were indicted for having contacts with the Israeli occupation’s intelligence, carrying out missions related to spying on Palestinian fighters and providing information about the Palestinian resistance.
