    In the years between 2007 and 2010, the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights has reported 29 women were killed by family members in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. However, in the past two years, 25 women have been subjected to honor killings, with 13 women murdered in 2011 and 12 women slain in 2012.
    ...
    Yet, unfortunately, honor killings remain just one small aspect of the horrific torment faced by Palestinian women and girls at the hands of Palestinian men.

    A recent study done by the Gaza-based Palestinian Women’s Information and Media Center found that 67 percent of Palestinian women reported being subjected to verbal violence on a regular basis, 71 percent to psychological violence, 52 percent to physical violence and 14 percent to sexual violence.

      Palestinian women and girls is overwhelmingly at the hands of the IDF. There's something about having a real Air Force with F-16 fighters, carrying real bombs and missiles (including cluster munitions and white phosphorus), a real Army, with tanks, troop carriers, Apache helicopters, a whole lot of heavily and lethally armed soldiers... Women the world over are subject to family violence (even in Israel!), not so many have the IDF or a half-century of occupation to contend with.
