Conversation on femicide during war

Screenshot 2024-01-08 205750_edited.jpg

The Israel Observatory on Femicide condemns in the strongest possible terms the barbaric femicide of women and girls in Israel at the hands of Hamas terrorists. This includes rape, murder and atrocities perpetrated against women, the beheading of children in front of their mothers, and the kidnapping of women, babies, and elderly women, all of which are unspeakable crimes against humanity. We pray for peace: for the return of all those abducted, the safe return of the soldiers from the front lines and the end to this terrible war.
