Gazan journalist Hossam Shabat reports a testimony from al Shifa Hospital:

“A husband and wife, along with their young children who were displaced, sought shelter at Al Shifa Hospital.

“The pregnant wife was forcibly undressed by Israeli forces despite informing them of her pregnancy; they continued to kick her.

“Then, they assaulted and raped her in front of her family and other men, threatening to shoot her husband and the other men if they closed their eyes.

The Watan news site adds that the woman was 5 months pregnant.

In another incident, Middle East Monitor reports, a Canadian physician was informed that a woman had been raped for two days until she lost her ability to speak.

Another woman at the Nasr Hospital was stripped of her clothing by Israeli soldiers in front of her husband and brother, and when one of them took their clothes off to cover her the Israeli soldiers killed both her brother and husband.

Middle East Eye reports: “Eyewitness says Israeli forces raped and killed women at al-Shifa hospital.”

“They raped women, kidnapped women, executed women, and pulled dead bodies from under the rubble to unleash their dogs on them.”

Jamila al-Hissi, a Palestinian woman who was besieged for six days in a building in the vicinity of al-Shifa hospital, told Al Jazeera that Israeli forces raped, tortured and executed women inside the hospital.

In January, the ICJ ordered Israel to refrain from any acts that could fall under the Genocide Convention and ensure its troops commit no genocidal acts against Palestinians in Gaza.

Israel, however, described the allegations as baseless, maintaining its mantra that it has the “most moral army in the world”.
