Meretz leader Zahava Gal-on on Thursday welcomed the US State Department report on human trafficking, saying that Israel's high ranking is an important achievement for the country, but that there is "still a lot of work to be done to combat human trafficking."

"In spite of the good news, human trafficking still exists in Israel and we must continue to fight against it until it is totally eradicated," Gal-on stated.

The 'Trafficking in Persons' (TIP) report is the most comprehensive worldwide study on the efforts of governments to combat severe forms of trafficking in persons, and its assessments are based on material collected from local government and non-government organizations.
