Biden urges global condemnation of Hamas 'sexual violence'

AFP Tue, December 5, 2023 at 2:36 PM CST

US President Joe Biden called on Tuesday for global condemnation of what he said was "horrific" sexual violence by Hamas during the October 7 attacks on Israel.

Biden's comments come after campaigners in Israel have derided what they see as a muted international response to gender-based violence during the attack.

"The world can't just look away at what’s going on," Biden said at a campaign event in Boston.

"It’s on all of us -- government, international organizations, civil society and businesses -- to forcefully condemn the sexual violence of Hamas terrorists without equivocation."
