UN experts issue warning about Israeli violations against Palestinian women and girls | Updates on Israel’s actions in Gaza

Experts from the United Nations have expressed concern over reports of alleged human rights violations in Gaza and the West Bank. They have received information about arbitrary executions of Palestinian women and girls in Gaza and the occupied West Bank, as well as reports of deliberate targeting and extrajudicial killings of women and children who sought refuge or were fleeing. The experts have also noted intensified raids by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem, leading to the deaths of hundreds of Palestinians and the detention of thousands of others.

The UN experts have raised alarm over the arbitrary detention of hundreds of Palestinian women and girls, including reports of inhuman treatment, denial of basic necessities, and severe beatings. There are also disturbing reports of sexual assault, including rape, threats of sexual violence, and the uploading of degrading photos of female detainees by the Israeli army.

Furthermore, there are reports of Palestinian women and children going missing after contact with the Israeli army in Gaza. The experts have called for an independent and impartial investigation into these allegations and for Israel to cooperate. They have also stated that the alleged acts may constitute grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, as well as serious crimes under international criminal law that could be prosecuted under the Rome Statute.

The experts have emphasized the importance of holding those responsible for these apparent crimes accountable and ensuring that victims and their families receive full redress and justice.
