Police raided 11 flats in Jerusalem that were used as illegal locations for sex work on Monday. Nine people were arrested for suspicion of operating, pimping and providing sexual services in these locations.

Police found NIS 10,000 in cash and mobile phones used by the arrested.

The police spokesperson stated that "it is unthinkable that sex work would be undertaken in the same building in which families and children live."
