captivity

in the Gaza Strip:



the Nova Nature Party

- both videos and testimonies of party goers unequivocally testify to a series of serious sexual assaults at the Nova Party scene.

There are survivors' testimonies about gang rape, hearsay testimonies about women's screams and more.

These testimonies agree with parallel descriptions on behalf of the evacuation and handling of the bodies.


Kibbutzim and communities in the south

- the testimonies of rescuers and corpse handlers were collected, according to which in many houses signs of rape were found near the murder, and that a large part of the cases happened in front of or near family members.

The report, as mentioned, analyzes dozens of confidential and public information, including testimonies of eyewitnesses and hearsay, interviews with rescue and treatment forces, information that was allowed to be published in the written and electronic media and inquiries that reached the union.

After locating the information, a process of cataloging and analysis was done in order to map the scenes and patterns of action of the occurrences in which the sexual crimes were committed.

The report does not provide quantitative information, since due to the nature of the events, which mostly ended in the murder of the victims, their full extent is not known now, and may never be known.



The report, published by the Association of Assistance Centers for Victims and Victims of Sexual Assault, constitutes an initial evidentiary infrastructure indicating sex crimes by Hamas terrorists since the beginning of the war, and will also be submitted to UN decision makers. "The findings leave no possibility of denial or ignoring.

The terrorist organization Hamas has chosen to injure the State of Israel with two clear strategies - taking citizens captive, and sadistic sex crimes," stated Orit Soliciano, CEO of the Association of Aid Centers, which published the report.

"It is no longer possible to remain silent - we expect the international organizations to take an unequivocal position, it is impossible to stand on the sidelines. Standing on the other side will be remembered as a historical stain on all those who chose to remain silent, silence and deny the sex crimes committed by Hamas."



The report was written by Dr. Carmit Keller Halamish and Naga Berger. "The brutal practices used on October 7, such as cutting off intimate parts of girls, women and men, shooting and burying weapons in genitals, were intended to corrupt and hurt in a sadistic and horrifying manner," they testify "The manner in which the injuries were carried out and the actions that accompanied them were intended to intensify the impact on the victims themselves and their environment, which was unable to prevent the injury.

These days, when the scar in our hearts refuses to heal, and the souls of our living sisters and brothers cry out to us from the ground, a large part of those we thought were partners and partners turn to silence and denial of the atrocities.

We call on you to make your voice heard, and not to let the cry of these victims evaporate."
