Seven men regularly sexually assaulted a large number of minors between ages of 14 to 18

Tel Aviv Police have arrested seven men in connection with a child molestation ring. An undercover investigation began after one of the purported victims came forward and told them about a number of girls who had sex with a group of adults in exchange for money.

Several hundred women in Israel - many of them foreigners - are trafficked within the country annually for commercial sexual exploitation.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Detectives of the Youth and Drug Trafficking unit of the Tel Aviv Central Unit and officers from the Shahar 101 division carried out the arrests at the suspects' homes.

The suspects are charged with engaging in acts of prostitution, indecent acts in public and involvement with minors in acts of prostitution.

Redemption comes through prayer.

A 17 year-old minor was arrested. He's believed to have been acting as a pimp, making the connection between the victims and one of the other suspects.

The suspects will be brought before the Magistrates Court in Tel Aviv on Thursday for their bail hearings.

"The difficult case uncovered today joins the series of cases publicized in recent weeks of sexual abuse and exploitation of female minors" Orit Sulitzeanu, director-general of the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel said in a statement. "This incident should serve as a decisive moment for the Israeli government - the moment we recognize that this is a serious social problem and we must eradicate it,"

She called on the government to establish a national program to combat sexual violence among youth.

Seven teenage boys were arrested for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl in Tel Aviv last week.

In another similar case in December, police arrested five teenage boys suspected of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.

"Stop burying your head in the sand - we call on authorities to recognize that in Israel 2014 there is an untreated widespread phenomenon that we must invest the necessary resources to eradicate," she added.

Israel remains a favored destination for men and women trafficked for forced labor and sexual exploitation.

Women from Russia and outlying states, as well as from China are still being trafficked across the border with Egypt into Israel for forced prostitution by organized criminal groups.

Several hundred women in Israel - many of them foreigners - are trafficked within the country annually for commercial sexual exploitation.
