This article describes the establishment of the Israel Observatory on Femicide (IOF) in November 2020, and documents all the femicide cases perpetrated in Israel during 2020. It is the first report of its kind in Israel. Special attention is paid to the connection between femicide and covid-19 during this difficult year. Unfortunately, the Israeli government has not taken the threat of femicide seriously either during the covid-19 pandemic or prior to it. While Israel knows how to target terrorism, Israel appears ineffective in tackling issues of “domestic terrorism”.
