      MK Levi-Abekasis: Fight Child Abuse

      According to a Carob Institute report, 39,129 new cases of child abuse were discovered in Israel during 2012.

      Chairwoman of the Knesset Children's Rights Committee MK Orly Levy Abekasis (Likud-Beyteinu) responded, "Handling this increasing phenomenon must be on our immediate national agenda. It is unthinkable that in Israel of 2013 children are mistreated and helpless. The entire system must be harnessed to find a solution, including sharing information between the various relevant authorities."
