Algeria on Tuesday called for an investigation into “Israeli sexual assaults” in the Palestinian territories and for an “urgent” ceasefire to be imposed in the Gaza Strip.

Algeria’s representative to the United Nations, Ammar Ben Jammeh, stressed the need for in-depth investigations into sexual attacks committed by the occupation forces in the Palestinian territories, according to a statement carried by the official Algerian news agency.

Bendjema underlined Algeria’s principled position, which states that no one, man or woman, regardless of religion or origin, should bear the horrors of sexual assaults in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The representative of Algeria demanded that the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Pramila Patten, obtain permission to visit several (Israeli) detention centers, where the rights of Palestinians are violated, and where more than 3,484 administrative detainees are held without trial.

Bin Jammeh revealed cases in which Palestinian women in Gaza were held in a cage in the rain and cold, without food, calling for an end to these atrocities by imposing a ceasefire urgently, as there is no alternative but that.

A few days ago, Fatima Tamboura, a Palestinian woman from northern Gaza City, who was released from Israeli prisons, revealed attacks committed by the Israeli army against her during her detention without charge.

Fatima told the Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency about the details of her arrest, strip searches and physical harassment several times during her detention by the Israeli army.
