PA daily reports on statistics of Palestinian honor killings

“On average, at least one Palestinian woman is murdered every month for this reason (i.e., family honor) by her relatives and the penal code in force shows leniency in punishing the perpetrators and gives them reduced sentences that anger supporters of women’s rights and causes. However, there are sources that say that more than two women are murdered every month.”
