The 16-year-old, who is defined as the main suspect and allegedly managed the entire system, operated the gambling system alongside people who would collect the debts from the children.

Some parents paid the money to protect the child, and a preliminary investigation shows that the debts range from NIS 3,000 to NIS 10,000, which were paid through apps like Beat.

Teens and their parents who owed money as a result of gambling, received threats not to pay the debt.



In addition, the main suspect opened WhatsApp gambling groups where the children were updated.

There are dozens of children, and the police are checking to see if there are any other minors who have been blackmailed and threatened.
