A 41-year-old man from Raanana was arrested on suspicion of abusing his eight children, acting violently towards his 1-year-old infant. He is also suspected of attacking his wife and making threats on her life.
The abuse was first discovered after a social worker arrived at the house and learnt of the abuse from family members. The man admitted to attacking his wife but claimed he did so in response to an attack on her part. He denied attacking the children. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
