|Jewish girls on their way to school in Modi'in Illit|
A school supervisor at an ultra-Orthodox Jewish girls’ school in the Israeli city of Modi’in Illit, now claims that she made up a story about a 5-year-old girl being raped by an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man on her way to school, according to police reports in Israel.
The supervisor of the school in the city of Modi'in Illit haredi who earlier filed a police report on the alleged rape of a girl, 5-years-old, has recanted the story, reportedly saying that the story was invented.
"I have blown the story out of proportion and made it up. It never happened," she said, while sitting in the dark as she spoke with a distorted voice in order to protect her identity.
She said she filed the false rape report as her way of standing up for the rights of abused children who cannot speak for themselves. "I did not think it would get to this level. I wanted to surprise the system," she told a television news station.
Police have flooded the city over the last two weeks trying to identify and locate the victim and the rapist, but residents have consistently refused to cooperate with the investigation.
The kindergarten supervisor said she did not tell the truth to the police investigators because she was very confused. “I did not know what to say. I feared for my life," she said.
Police said that despite the significant discrepancies in her story along with the obstructions of city residents they have decided to continue the investigation into the possible violation of children.
The school supervisor also said that she knows of countless young children who are being raped on a daily basis.
She said she was raped when she was 16-years-old and never received proper treatment.
“I suffered as a teenager after being raped. I had no one to turn too,” she told the television news station.
