Teenage Prostitutes in Israel

An NGO reported in 2011 that it has identified around 620 teenagers who are working as prostitutes in Israel. The organization, Elem, previously reported finding 126 teenage prostitutes in 2010 and said that the higher number was due to stepped up efforts.

75 percent of the minors were girls, 20 percent were boys, and the remaining 5 percent were transgender. The youngest prostitutes that were identified were 12.
