Most Israeli teens report sex violence
Almost 90 percent of teens in Israel
said they have been victims of some level of sexual violence, a study of 1,036 high school students ages 12 to 18 found.
Researchers at the University of Haifa and Ben Gurion University said the number of criminal files opened by police for assault against children rose from 6,370 in 1998 to 8,805 in 2005. The students completed an anonymous questionnaire that asked questions on demography, physical and sexual assaults, post-traumatic stress disorder and social support from family and friends.
