A 23-year-old girl from southern Israel is going through a post-traumatic period after being sexually assaulted by her ex-partner – she now says she has trouble falling asleep at night and is fighting to the truth came out: “If I hadn't got up and left – I really think it would have ended in murder.”

Channel 12 TV published an article about Carmel (pseudonym) 23-year-old girl will never forget last November. Then she learned that her ex-partner had sexually assaulted her and photographed her naked. More than a year has passed since then, but Carmel still struggles to sleep at night and lives, according to her, in hell.

"We met when I was 18 years old. I fell in love, and six months later we moved in together,” she recalls. “He seemed perfectly normal, but after a while he left and did not say where, he returned very late – drunk or with a strong smell.” According to her, over time, the affair became more and more intrusive: “He began to look who is calling me, find out where I go, who I talk to and for how long. There were warning signs, but I didn't see them. I was an innocent girl and didn't know how the world worked.”

Later, her health deteriorated and she ended up losing 40 kilograms in weight. “I couldn't work, I often threw up, and I couldn't function,” she says in a broken voice. “I just sat at home for months and months.”

November 6, 2021 was the worst day of Carmel's life. “While he was sleeping, I looked at his phone because I knew something bad was going on,” she repeated breathlessly. "I went into the gallery and saw my naked photos, which were taken a month before on the sofa in the living room, at night. I was shocked. He slipped the drug of rape into my drink and sexually assaulted me.”

“I woke him up and then I got slapped,” she says, as she also revealed in her statement to the police. "He told me: "This is the last time you touch my phone" and confessed: "It's you, what do you want? I took a picture of you.” She also says, “After this happened, I had to force him to leave, but he would not agree. One day, after he left home, I folded his clothes and packed them into suitcases that were waiting for him outside the door. He started behaving like a madman, yelling and cursing.”

Later, Carmel decided to file a police report and, according to her, they let her listen to a tape of her ex-partner confessing to what he had done and saying, that it was the biggest mistake of his life.

“It took me 3 months to digest what I went through, and to this day I find it hard to realize that I went through it,” shares she. "I've been through so much, I didn't expect to go through this, and that hurts the most. This is crazy – the girl is sleeping, they take off her clothes and photograph her in all sorts of poses. I will never know what happened that evening, and this uncertainty haunts me to this day.

Prosecutor's response: “The prosecutor's office is dealing with the case, when decisions are made, they will be communicated to all involved sides".
