Increasing cases of violence against women in Israel since the Al-Aqsa flood News


The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported that 14 women were killed in Israel since the operation Al-Aqsa flood On October 7, half of them have been registered since the beginning of this year, an increase of 75% over the same period last year.

In a report published today, Monday, the newspaper quoted Tal Hochman, Deputy Director General of the Women’s Lobby (a non-partisan feminist organization), as saying that according to statistics in Israel for the year 2024, “a woman is killed every two weeks,” adding, “We have warned repeatedly since the beginning of the war about the worsening violence against women.” .

For her part, Leila Ben-Ami, founder of the “Michal Sela” Forum concerned with stopping violence against women and the sister of a woman named Michal who was killed by her husband, described, “The days of war are difficult, and they are days of general anxiety, tension, and isolation that result in boredom and great pressure in some homes.”

She added that since last October 7, “inquiries submitted to the forum have increased by 20%, and we are receiving inquiries that we did not know about before, showing that the new weapons policy that was implemented has increased the risk of women being threatened.”

Hochman believes that the way weapons licenses are distributed “is characterized by negligence, and there is almost no control over weapons, which has spread fear among women, and some of them have become afraid that their ex-partner will obtain a gun license, and they have nowhere to turn,” as she puts it.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, “officials have warned in recent months about the arms distribution plan promoted by the Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir Because of cases of violence of this kind.”
