In Israel, prostitution is prohibited from this July. In the case of a first-time offender, NIS 2,000 ($530), and if retried within 3 years, the doubled amount, and the fines up to NIS ($20,400) can be imposed. Buying sex was illegalized last year. Meanwhile, several government organizations and civil rights groups have opposed to law enforcement until a recovery program is in place to support thousands of victims of prostitution, who will lose their jobs. Israel is named as the country that introduced the Nordic model following Sweden (1999), the first to enact an anti-prostitution law to prevent prostitution, followed by Norway, Iceland, Canada, France, and Northern Ireland.
