TEL AVIV — Social media users allege Cochav Elkayam-Levy, head of Israel’s civil commission, showed an old 2022 Kurdish female recruits' photo, falsely implying they were Israeli girls assaulted by Al-Qassam fighters at the Nova Music Festival on October 7.اضافة اعلان

Investigative journalist Max Blumenthal exposed the fabrication, revealing that Israeli authorities created a "Hamas Massacre" site to disseminate scenes from the music festival, Khaberni reported.
On X, formerly known as Twitter, Elkayam-Levy claims she was targeted by Blumenthal, asking X users to “BelieveIsraeliWomen,” and here was the response:

The chair of Israel's "Hamas rape" commission, Cochav Elkayam Levy, has delivered a highly revealing response to me.

After I exposed her for promoting a 2022 photo of dead Kurdish fighters as women raped by Hamas on Oct 7, she did not bother to refute me, nor did she explain her mistake or issue a correction.
Instead, she tacitly acknowledged that her evidence was fake and simply thanked me for the publicity. Then she blocked me.

Elkayam-Levy therefore acknowledges that Israel's commission on October 7 sex crimes has no interest in conducting a factual inquiry or upholding basic standards of review. It is nothing more than a propaganda tool designed to distract from and justify the titanic crimes Israel is committing in Gaza. Indeed, its conclusions were determined by the political imperatives of the Israeli military, not by any evidence.

Elyakam-Levy also felt compelled to defend her record of consulting for Israel's Attorney General on breaking Palestinian prisoner hunger strikes. While claiming she "advocated for the protection of prisoners’ rights" in a 2015 paper, she weaponized human rights law to advocate force-feeding as a mechanism of protecting their "right to life."

Elkayam-Levy reiterated these claims on November 12 at Harvard Medical School in a seminar titled “Unspeakable Terrorism,” discussing gender-based violence on October 7. She described a scene in a photo showing the body of a young woman, with the lower part exposed, torn underwear, and hanging from one leg, claiming it was captured at the Nova Music Festival site.

Additionally, a recent allegation circulated that the friend of released Israeli captive Maya Regev stated Regev was raped by more than one man during her captivity with Hamas, as mentioned in Israeli medical reports.

However, an investigation revealed that medical reports did not mention any rape. The Israeli Ministry of Health announced that Regev, released from Gaza on Sunday, November 26, arrived at Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva for immediate medical follow-up, and her condition was stable.
