Humiliation vs. Self-Respect: The Untold Story of the Abuse of Palestinian Women in Hebron

by Ramzy Baroud

“The humiliation of Palestinian women by Israeli soldiers in the occupied city of Al-Khalil (Hebron) on July 10 was not the first such episode. Sadly, it will not be the last. Indeed, the stripping of five women in front of their children, parading them naked around their family home and then stealing their jewelry by an Israeli military unit, was not a random act. It deserves deep reflection. Palestinians rightly understood the event – investigated at length by the Israeli rights group B’Tselem, in a report published on September 5 – as an intentional Israeli policy.” (09/15/23)
