FEATURING ARUN GUPTA - In the weeks after the October 7, 2023 Hamas attack on Israel, there were numerous claims of mass rape by Hamas soldiers of Israeli women. In November 2023, the group Physicians for Human Rights Israel released a position paper claiming there was pervasive sexual violence. 

A month later, the New York Times published an investigation making similar claims. The two reports were widely cited to justify Israel’s on-going genocide in Gaza. The United Nations (UN) also released a report in early March in the same vein.

He spoke with YES! Senior Editor Sonali Kolhatkar on YES! Presents: Rising Up With Sonali about his investigation and also commented on the just-released UN report.
