Israeli Lawyer Amit Soussana Speaks Out About Her 55 Days of Torture and Sexual Assault in Gaza

The Harrowing Tale of Amit Soussana: An Israeli Hostage’s Sexual Abuse in a Hamas Terrorist Attack in Gaza

On October 7, Israeli lawyer Amit Soussana was kidnapped from her home by at least 10 armed men and taken to Gaza, where she was beaten and mistreated. During her captivity, her guard asked her invasive questions about her personal life and forced her into degrading and violent situations.

For 55 days, Soussana endured physical and sexual violence at the hands of her captors in various locations in Gaza. After being freed along with other hostages during a ceasefire in late November, Soussana spoke publicly about her ordeal, shedding light on the plight of those still held captive in Gaza.

Despite Hamas’ denial of any sexual abuse against hostages, a United Nations report confirmed the presence of sexual violence during the terrorist attack of October 7. Soussana’s detailed and harrowing account of her experience has sparked controversy and disbelief from Hamas officials.

After being released, Soussana spoke to medical professionals and the UN team about the sexual assault she endured. Hamas, while acknowledging the need to investigate the allegations, questioned the veracity of Soussana’s story and criticized the media for their coverage of the issue.

Through her courage in speaking out, Soussana aims to raise awareness about the atrocities committed against civilian hostages in Gaza. Her story serves as a reminder of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, shedding light on the horrors faced by innocent individuals caught in the crossfire.
