Israeli Ambassador moves to end violence against women

Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, Shlomit Sufa

Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, Shlomit Sufa, has called for a concerted effort to sup­port victims of the Israel-Gaza conflict, particularly women affected by the events of Oc­tober 2023.

She said voices of women and affected communities were heard in all conflict resolution and peacebuilding processes.

The Israeli Ambassador said this in Accra at a press confer­ence on the topic “the fight against sexual violence in Isra­el, insights from October 7.”

Ms Sufa said this was the time to distribute the informa­tion on sexual violence, adding that it was important for peo­ple to be aware of the sexual violence that took place.

“This is not political bias. It is a matter of being on either side of the conflict. It is moral­ly wrong,” she said.

She noted that Israel has been actively engaging with international partners and organisations to combat sexual violence.

Ambassador Sufa called for global recognition of the trauma inflicted by Hamas and the suffering endured by the victims, and called on all rel­evant and competent bodies, both national and internation­al to bring all perpetrators regardless of their rank and affiliation to justice.
