The Hamas terrorist organization admitted on Thursday, that it has executed numerous Palestinians without a trial.

Hamas said that the Palestinians it has executed by a firing squad were acting as spies for Israel.

Hamas executed its own former public relations spokesman, Ayman Taha. The execution took place on Monday. Taha was arrested over allegations that he was spying for an unspecified Arab country.

He was also accused by Hamas of corrupt financial practices. About 30 Palestinians were executed after being accused of collaborating with Israel.

The suspects were killed without a trial. Hamas warned that it will continue to kill Palestinians who help Israel, without a trial.

"The resistance will not have mercy on anyone who provides information to the enemy. Death on the field is what you get," a Hamas spokesperson said.

"The men were executed after being caught red handed providing information on the whereabouts of the resistance and deactivating the ambushes prepared against the enemy," another Hamas official said.

27-year-old Mareks Burkevics, was sentenced to 18 months jail after he pleaded guilty to breaking into the house in Deeside, North Wales.

Mareks Burkevics stole several items, including jewelry and a camera, but then decided to stay for a couple of days, since the owner was not home.

When the homeowner returned, she was surprised to find her items thrown around, and called police. Officers found Burkevics in the woman’s bedroom wearing her bra, underwear, socks and white silk top.

Burkevics defended himself, saying that he wore the woman’s clothing to keep himself warm. However, judge Rhys Rowlands did not accept this excuse.

The court heard how the woman knew Burkevics and has given him meals in the past because she sympathized with his drug problem.

Burkevics apologized to the victim when he pleaded guilty to theft.

(Scroll down for video) A family in England, released a video of the moment a thief realizes that he has been caught on surveillance video.

The thief was left with an open mouth as he stared into the lens for several seconds, seemingly unable to decide what to do.

Despite being caught on video for 20 seconds, the thief tried to hide from the camera mounted on the wall by ducking out of sight, and removed the lens from the wall and took it with him when he left.

Unbeknown to the thief, his efforts were useless because the footage was stored online as is was recording.

30-year-old Phi Chong of Daventry, Northamptonshire, said that he ordered the high-tech surveillance video from the United States, and installed it in his parents’ home after the home has been broken into and burglarized a few months ago.

Police are looking for the man, and are asking anyone who knows the thief to call them.

The family was devastated when the thief stole jewelry, which their deceased brother, Vay Chong, left for his unborn child.

“My brother died and left a gold necklace and Buddha amulet. This was intended for his unborn child. He is having a boy and it was meant to be a gift from him,” Phi said.

(Scroll down for video) A customer took to Reddit, and asked people for their opinion of himself after he exacted revenge against a child.

The man wrote that he went into a Burger King to buy food, but things were slow as they had a new cashier. While waiting on line, an anxious child was whining and cursing while his mother yapped on the phone.

Reddit user thr111 wrote that the child was out of control, shouting, banging and throwing things around. The boy kept demanding apple pie while using expletives not usually heard from the mouth of a young child, who the customer believed was about 5 years old.

The man turned around and asked the mother to keep her son quiet, but she aggressively refused. After getting a headache from the child’s whining the man decided to teach the rude mother and her obnoxious child a lesson.

He ordered all 23 apples pies left at the Burger King.

“I ordered every pie they had left in addition to my burgers. It turned out to be 23 pies in total. I took my order and walked towards the exit. Moments later, I heard the woman yelling: ‘what do you mean you don't have any pies left? Who bought them all?’ I turned around and saw the cashier pointing me out with the woman shooting me a death glare. I stood there and pulled out a pie and slowly started eating it as I stared back at her. Then I turned and slowly walked away,” he wrote.

“Am I a bad person for this?” He asked Reddit users.

A family was horrified as they watched the park being closed for the night, while they sat inside a Ferris wheel.

The family of five, was trapped on top of the Ferris wheel at an adventure park after staff turned off the lights and started closing.

Darren and Lynzie Riggs-Long of London, England, were trapped inside the ride along with their three children, Kieran, 10, Lewis, 6, and 3-year-old Jack.

According to Mr. Riggs-Long, 38, the family was on top of the ride when staff began turning the lights off all the rides just before 10:00 p.m.

It was cold and very dark, and they were left swinging in the wind to what seemed like eternity. The family began screaming for help as they did not want to be stranded for the night.

Staff members at the Adventure Island in Southend, Essex, finally heard the family’s pleas for help. One staff member waited near the Ferris wheel to sooth the family that they will be rescued while others restarted the ride.
Surveillance video showed that the ordeal lasted a heart stopping 2 minutes and 58 seconds.

A spokesperson said: “The health and safety of our customers is of paramount concern to Adventure Island.”

“We regret that the Riggs-Long family was unfortunately left for a very short period of time at the top of the Ferris wheel, and we have offered bracelets and meals as compensation.”

The parents said that they had planned to stay in Southend-on-Sea for four days, but cut their holiday short following the ordeal, which left them all traumatized.
