Seven men between the ages of 17-45 were arrested in Tel Aviv on suspicion of running a prostitution ring of 25 teenage girls between the ages of 14-18.

The girls allegedly performed sexual acts in return for money and sexual favors.

In a separate incident last week, seven teenage boys were arrested for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl in Tel Aviv.

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