A recent UN report alleges instances of rape against hostages in Gaza. According to the report, individuals held captive during an incident on October 7th were subjected to acts of rape and other forms of sexual violence.
Report alleges instances of rape against hostages in Gaza. The investigation, conducted by the United Nations, sheds light on the harrowing experiences endured by the victims, whose identities have not been disclosed but it is still not proved. The report underscores the urgent need for accountability and justice for the survivors of such heinous crimes.
The team found evidence suggesting conflict-related sexual violence, during Hamas' October 7 strike in Israel, according to Pramila Patten, the UN special envoy on sexual violence in conflict. It represents the UN's most definitive conclusion regarding allegations of sexual assault following the incident.
It said that these occurred in at least three places: Road 232, Kibbutz Re'im, and the area surrounding the Nova musicfestival.
According to a 24-page report, the UN team, led by Patten, visited Israel from January 29 to February 14 to collect, analyze, and verify information on conflict-related sexual violence occurring on October 7 and its aftermath.
The report also mentioned the team's visit to Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, where it learned about Palestinians in detention facing hostage treatment.
During their time in Israel, the team conducted 33 meetings with Israeli institutions, interviewed 34 individuals including survivors and witnesses of the October 7 attack, released hostages, and reviewed 50 hours of attack footage.
In the past, Hamas has refuted claims that its fighters sexually assaulted women during the October 7 assault.
The political office of Hamas stated in a December Telegram message:
We strongly reject and denounce the coordination of some Western media outlets with the Zionist misleading campaigns that promote unfounded lies and allegations aimed at demonizing the Palestinian resistance, the latest of which is the allegation that resistance members committed ‘sexual violence’ during the Battle of Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7th.- Hamas
According to the report, the mission team discovered that several naked bodies from the waist down were recovered, (men and women), with hands tied and shot multiple times, often in the head" at various places throughout Israel.
The research went on, such a pattern of restraining victims may be indicative of some forms of sexual violence, "even though it is circumstantial."
The findings of the report have prompted widespread condemnation and calls for action from the international community. Efforts are underway to ensure that those responsible for perpetrating these egregious acts are held accountable and that measures are implemented to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
It looks like it happens with both parties as according to an convincing and detailed UN assessment, Palestinian inmates in Israeli detention facilities are frequently inhumanely abused, with beatings, dog attacks, extended use of stress postures, and extreme sexual assault among the common forms of torture.
The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine (UNRWA) conducted interviews with Palestinian detainees who were released from custody at the Kerem Shalom crossing point since December. The interviews served as the primary source of information for the report, which was assembled with the assistance of UNRWA personnel.
Just over 1,000 inmates have been released since December, according to the report that was reviewed by the Guardianand distributed within the UN. However, it approximates that since the beginning of the current Gaza genocide, which was sparked by Hamas resistance attacks into southern Israel on October 7 that claimed the lives of around 1,200 Israelis, civilians and Israeli defense soldiers, more than 4,000 men, women, and children have been detained in Gaza.


UN report alleges instances of rape against hostages in Gaza. The UN investigation highlights the importance of addressing issues related to sexual violence in conflict zones and underscores the need for enhanced protection measures for vulnerable populations. It is imperative that steps are taken to provide support and assistance to the survivors of such atrocities, and to work towards creating a safer and more secure environment for all individuals affected by armed conflict.
