Cases of women being beaten happen all the time and do not make headlines; worse than this are the cases of killings for "family honor."

Women who are murdered are buried by members of their family in secret, and their deaths are not reported to any official body. The Palestinian media also refrain from reporting on this, for the sake of "family honor."
