Family of key case in New York Times October 7 sexual violence report renounces story, says reporters manipulated them | Mondoweiss |

A New York Times story claiming a pattern of gender-based violence on October 7 hinged on the story of Gal Abdush. But the Abdush family says there is no proof she was raped, and that Times reporters interviewed them under false pretenses.

The story itself repeats October 7 testimonies that have been previously published and already debunked and discredited, but The Times investigation hinges predominantly on one central story, the story of the rape of "Gal Abdush," who is described by the Times as "The Woman in the Black Dress."

Although claiming its story proves that "the attacks against women were not isolated events but part of a broader pattern of gender-based violence on Oct. 7" the veracity of The New York Times story was undermined almost as soon as it was published, including from the Abdush family itself who says there is no proof Gal Abdush was raped and that the New York Times interviewed them under false pretenses.

Western Media Fails Gaza Again

New York Times claimed in its story that Hamas fighters raped an Israeli woman, Gal Abdush, in October 2023. However, the woman's family members have refuted these claims and said that they were interviewed under false pretenses

Hamas beheading babies, confiscating humanitarian aid of Palestinians and the latest of such claims - that Hamas fighters engaged in systematic rape and sexual violence against Israeli women - are often used to dehumanise all Palestinians and justify the ongoing war on them that has taken more than 21,000 lives. 

None of the aforementioned claims have been proven so far but western media outlets often begin their coverage with these narratives, without referring to the larger historical context of Israel's oppression of Palestine for decades - and without checking the veracity of the claims.
