Police in the Lahish area are investigating nine teenage boys for performing sexual acts with a girl of 13. The girl originally agreed to have relations with some of the boys in order to become accepted and popular, but they began bringing in their friends and she soon started to believe that she was being exploited, police said on Tuesday. The boys, who are aged 13-15, made the girl carry out indecent acts through force and by threatening to spread rumors about her. The police opened the investigation after one of the girl's schoolmates told a councilor, who informed the police about what was going on. It was only then that the victim spoke to the police.
