Security forces from the Islamist group Hamas executed three convicted Palestinians at dawn Tuesday, a move condemned by local and international human rights groups and likely to lead to deeper division among Palestinian factions.Hamas, which has been in control of Gaza since 2007, had been under pressure not to carry out the executions, with the European Union and United Nations joining in calls from human rights groups for the decision to be set aside.Under Palestinian law, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has to agree to the use of the death penalty. Human rights groups last week demanded that Hamas hold off on the executions, but the Gaza-based attorney general said the sentences could be carried out.
