Domestic violence in Palestine: Iraqi death shakes Palestinian society

When a young woman is brought to the Hussein Hospital with a broken spine, doctors begin treating the outbreak.

Everyone here has become accustomed to treat injured youths.

The hospital is located near the Palestinian city of Bethlehem, whose busy streets lead us to refugee camps and Israeli checkpoints, where violent incidents often take place.

But the story of the poor is different. His tragic story is the story of gender violence and protests in Palestinian society.

“This is a turning point, and we will not forget the poor of Israel,” says Randa Suni, who hails from the Palestinian Women’s Center for League Aid.

The poor were first brought to the hospital on August 10. He was brought back to the same hospital two weeks later, but this time the doctor could not do anything because the men had died.

Palestinian authorities have now acknowledged that the fatal wounds of the poor Israeli were caused by domestic violence. The Palestinian authorities initially criticized the manner in which they tried to deal with the case.

Palestinian Authority’s Attorney Akram al-Khatib said at a press conference on Thursday that Israeli poor victims of domestic violence.

He said the family of Israe subjected them to physical and psychological torture, and cases have been registered against their three relatives.

Human rights activists say the case of Isra Gharib signifies the non-protection of Palestinian women.

A friend of Isra Gharib told the BBC that she was very liberal and unconventional and wanted to get a reputation in her field.

Isra Gharib was a makeup artist and had thousands of followers on Instagram. She was a well-known figure in Beth El-Sahur, a village near Bethlehem.

The poor of Israel belonged to a conservative family where men and women have strict rules for matching. The use of social media toward ISRA has been a focal point of the ‘suspicious circumstances’ that led to his death.

It is believed that Israib Gharib shared a photo with his fiancee at a coffee shop with his friends. This account has now been deleted.

According to local media, the image of the poor girl’s family with her male non-male was a cause of disgrace to her even though she was supportive of the affair.

His sister-in-law, Muhammad Safi, said that Ms Arafah Gharib’s mental health was poor and she was injured by falling from the balcony and the wounds visible on her body were inflicted on her own.

The prosecutor has denied this claim.

Isra shared her injuries on social media and suspended all appointments for make-up. He wrote, ‘My waist is broken and today I have an operation. If my operation goes right, I will tell you otherwise all appointments are considered over. ‘

Despite medical staff inspections and x-ray tests, it appears that the police have not taken any action.

Hours after Isra’s death, according to Islamic tradition, they were buried.

If a Facebook group called ‘ Do You Know Us ‘ exposes men who mistreat or deceive their women, the issue of ISRAI might have been suppressed if it had not been raised.

The same Facebook group also shared an audio recording on social media in which Isra is screaming at the hospital for her alleged violence by her father, brothers and sisters.

Prosecutors said last week that two audio recordings have been paired and that the two have seven-hour intervals for recording times.

The hospital administration has strongly denied violence to Israa Gharib at the treatment hospital, but claims on Facebook groups continue to spread and the story of Isra has increased.

The same Palestinian Facebook group ‘ Do You Know Us ‘ shared a WhatsApp conversation with her cousin, Isra Gharib, in which she says she went out with her family’s wishes today with a man who would soon Will become a fiance

In many Arab countries the hashtags of the Israeli Poor, Nine Honor in Honor Crime (no honor crimes) and VR All Israel Poor (we are all poor) are trending.

BBC monitoring counselor Halwa says social media has forced officials to work hard in this case.

In thousands of messages on Twitter and Facebook, in addition to calls for justice for Israel, several women described incidents that occurred to them.

Demonstrations in front of the Palestinian prime minister’s office demanded that women be protected from domestic violence.

“I immediately realized something was wrong with Isra,” women’s rights activist Randa Sanyura said. I do not believe the story falling from the balcony. ‘

Her family was saying she was disturbed. Isra’s sister-in-law said in an interview that she had a shadow.

The protesters had taken up a poster that said, “Assy is in your head, not in the woman’s body.”

Post-mortem of ISRA decided to post mournful anger and protests on social media. The pathology report revealed that the death of Isra Gharib was caused by a failure of the respiratory system.

The Palestinian Attorney General said at a press conference in Ramallah that Isra’s death was caused by violence and that the story from the balcony was designed to turn the investigation in the wrong direction.

When the BBC contacted a close member of the family of Isra Gharib, they declined to comment.

Two hospitals, where the injured ISRAI was brought to the poor, said they had notified the police but no response had yet been received by authorities as to why the ISRA case was not addressed.

Increasing violence

The story of Isra Gharib is not unique.

According to the Palestinian Women’s Center for Legal Aid, 24 women were killed in the Jordanian and Gaza Strip last year due to gender and domestic violence.

Human rights group Haq has been paying attention to the growing number of incidents against women for years.

Human rights activists are not punished for torturing women and circulating a panel code that came into force in 1960 in western Jordan.

The Palestinian Authority amended the law in 2011 to prevent murder in the name of so-called honor.

But in 2017, a UN report said judges were still using Articles 99 and 100 of the old Penal Code, which dealt with if the abuser was a family member.

The report adds that Palestinian women face various forms of discrimination and violence. They are not only being affected by Israeli occupation, but are also causing problems for the system of patriarchy prevailing in society.

Randa Sanyura says the panel code does not mandate the testimony of family members who witness the violence against women. The law protects witnesses who increase the power of men in the family.

Palestinian authorities have signed a number of global conventions to ensure human rights, violence against women, and gender violence, but they are not implemented, activists say.

Now the campaign to bring justice to Israel is in full swing.

Sohair Farak, a spokesman for the campaign, says change must be social and legal.

“Women like Isra should be confident that they will be helped and have a system in which women should not be afraid to come forward.”
