Palestinian women face rising domestic abuse

More than a third of women in West Bank and Gaza reportedly suffer physical or verbal attacks at home.

    Domestic violence is a growing problem in the occupied Palestinian territories.

    Nearly 40 per cent of married women have experienced some form of abuse in the past year in the West Bank and Gaza, according to new figures.
