Frequently used to describe Palestinians who work for Israeli
intelligence agencies in gathering information about other Palestinians. Israel
often provides these Palestinians with financial compensation, travel privileges and/or protection. The reasons motivating Palestinian
collaboration with Israel differ, but many Palestinians have become collaborators as a result of blackmail tactics and other forms of pressure by Israeli operatives. In several cases, Palestinian militant groups have killed Palestinians suspected of being collaborators. Many collaborators have moved to live inside Israel because of fear for their lives.
