Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a forceful press conference held in Tel Aviv, alongside Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Minister Benny Gantz, called out various women’s and human rights organizations. Netanyahu’s criticism was centered on their lack of vocal opposition to the alleged extreme sexual violence perpetrated by Hamas against Israeli women.
During the conference, Netanyahu expressed deep frustration over the silence from these groups in response to reports of brutal sexual attacks and mutilations by Hamas. He questioned whether this silence was due to the victims being Jewish, challenging the organizations to break their silence and condemn these atrocities.
The description of the violence given by Israeli Police Chief Kobi Shabtai was horrifying. He spoke of acts of terrorism that included mutilation, rape, and desecration of bodies, emphasizing the sadistic nature of these assaults.
Netanyahu, highlighting the severity of these incidents, called for global leaders and nations to publicly denounce these heinous acts. Eyewitness reports added to the grim narrative, with accounts of violent gang rapes and murders, including a chilling story where a victim was fatally shot after enduring a brutal assault.
Netanyahu’s demand for action and recognition from international human rights groups underlines the critical need for global awareness and denouncement of such extreme acts of violence.
