The Ministry of Defense today decided to recognize an Israeli woman who was raped by a Palestinian attacker in 2003 as a terror victim under the Compensation for Victims of Hostilities Law
Her claim to be recognized as a victim of hostility was transferred from the National Insurance Institute to the Ministry of Defense at the end of 2018.
At the end of the examination of the incident and its circumstances, the Ministry of Defense determined that there is reasonable grounds to assume that the victim was attacked and raped on nationalistic grounds. As such, she will receive the full rights and benefits granted to other victims of terror.
Due to privacy concerns, the identity and details of the victim can not be identified.
