A UN report recognized that Hamas terrorists carried out acts of sexual violence including rape and gang rape against female hostages in Gaza on October 7th.

However, Israel criticized the UN for downplaying the atrocities and not condemning Hamas or holding a Security Council meeting.

“I have ordered our ambassador to the U.N. Gilad Erdan to return to Israel for immediate consultations regarding the attempt to silence the serious U.N. report on the mass rapes committed by Hamas and its aides on October 7th,” Israel’s foreign minister Israel Katz wrote.

“Despite the authority granted to him, the U.N. Secretary General did not order the convening of the Security Council in view of the findings or declare Hamas a terrorist organization and impose sanctions on its supporters,” he wrote.

The UN report found evidence of sexual violence and torture against hostages still being held.

“It took the U.N. five months to finally acknowledge the shocking sex crimes committed during the Hamas terror attack on Oct.7,” Ambassador Gilad Erdan stated. “Today, with the release of the report on the sexual abuse that Israeli female hostages are enduring, the shame of the U.N. is on clear display. The U.N. has not held even one discussion on the topic. Not even one meeting.”

The mission “found clear and convincing information that sexual violence, including rape, sexualized torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment has been committed against hostages,” special representative Pramila Patten said.

There were “reasonable grounds to believe that such violence may be ongoing against those still held in captivity,” she added.

“The mission team also found a pattern of victims, mostly women, found fully or partially naked, bound, and shot across multiple locations,” Patten said, noting that “although circumstantial, such a pattern may be indicative of some forms of sexual violence, including sexualized torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.”

An intercepted call revealed a UNRWA teacher bragging about kidnapping an Israeli woman, using terms like “sabaya” also used by ISIS.

Israel accused UNRWA of failing to address Hamas involvement among its employees.

“On the call you can hear him bragging about ‘sabaya’ a female captive, he is talking about one of our girls, about one of our women,” Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said.

While the UN launched an investigation, Israel remains concerned for the welfare of female hostages still believed to be sexually assaulted in captivity.
