Palestinian Arab women killed in 2007

PCHR came out with a report last month on human rights violations in the PA. They significantly undercount the number of Palestinian Arabs killed by each other, but even according to their own numbers here is an interesting statistic:















Total number of Palestinian Arab women killed by their own people in 2007: 47
Number of Palestinian Arab women killed only by "honor killings" in 2007: 14
Total number of Palestinian Arab women killed by Israel in 2007: 4

(My own count was that 41 women were killed, so I will adjust my 2007 count upwards by 6.)
