A Beit Shemesh woman was convicted on Sunday of severely abusing six of her 12 children. Her husband was convicted of taking part in the abuse and failing to prevent it. The decision of the Jerusalem District Court was given behind closed doors in order to protect the identity of the children. According to the indictment, the woman, dubbed "Mother Taliban" in the Israeli media due to her custom of wearing multiple layers of clothing, abused her young children "at least" 25 separate times.
