For the sixth time in a row, Israel ranked in the top category on the USA list of countries fighting human trafficking. The report has been published annually since 2001, and divides 187 countries into three groups according to how active they are in fighting the issue.
For over a decade, Israel's ranking held fast in the second group, until it moved into the first group in 2012. Since then, Israel has retained its ranking as a top country. Israel fights human trafficking in three main ways: prevention, enforcement and protecting the victims.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said, "The report classifies Israel as one of the best countries, and that's good news for the state of Israel. We are working to eradicate the cruel practice of human trafficking. We will continue to work in order to ensure that the modern world ends slavery forever."
