A report in Amad says that, somehow, the "Israeli occupation" has the biggest violent effects on Palestinian women.

But then, in a distant second place, it mentions real statistics on violence against Palestinian women - from Palestinian men.

In 2015, 15 killings of Palestinian women and girls were monitored and documented, while 18 other killings were documented during 2016, and in 2017, the Women’s Center recorded 30 killings. In 2018, 24 Palestinian women were murdered.

In 2019, the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics conducted a survey showing that about 59.3% of married or ever-married Palestinian women / girls in the age group (15-64 years) have been subjected to violence (including psychological and economic) by their husbands: 70.4% in Gaza compared to 52.3% in the West Bank. The highest percentage, 66.9%, were in the 20-24 age group.  More than half of ever married girls and young women aged between 15 to 19-years-old have been exposed to violence by their husbands.

For physical violence 18.5% experienced it in the previous 12 months from their husband, and 9.5% suffered sexual violence from him.  An astounding 12% suffered from sexual violence in the Jericho area not from their husbands.

15%  of married women in Gaza experienced incidents of sexual abuse by husbands over the previous year. More than half of these experienced it repeatedly (3+ times).

As long as Palestinians pretend that all problems are from Israel, Palestinian women are not ever going to get the help they need.
