Hamas likely committed sexual violence during attacks in Israel on October 7th, according to a UN team’s conclusion.

The team led by Pramila Patten, the UN Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, found evidence of rape, gang rape, and sexualized torture.

Despite Hamas’s denial, the report highlights incidents at multiple locations during the attacks. The report also mentions sexual violence against hostages and ongoing concerns for those still in captivity.

Israel calls for UN action against Hamas as a terrorist organization, while disputing allegations of sexual violence by its own forces.

The UN’s findings have sparked diplomatic tensions, with Israel recalling its ambassador for “consultations” and accusing the UN of attempting to silence the report.
