File Picture - Israeli Man Charged for Raping His Three Daughters for 21 Years - Reuters

In a shocking revelation in Israel, a man has been charged with reportedly raping his three daughters for more than two decades.

The man has been charged in a Tel Aviv District Court for sexual assault of his daughters, according to ynetnews.com.

The identity of the person is yet to be revealed. He is believed to have started sexually abusing the girls right since their early childhood.

Although the mother of the three girls knew about the assault, she is believed to have done nothing to stop her husband.

When a daughter told her mother about what was going on, the mother reportedly replied to her horror: "Its ok, he does that to me too."

According to the compliant filed on behalf of the daughters' side, the mother used to lock up their daughters in the toilet, push their heads in the bowl and flush them, when the girls reported the atrocity to her.

Physicians have obtained reports from the girls. "The defendant's actions during the years in question were made by use of force, or threats of force, and in a manner that did not allow the complainants to express any resistance. The defendant executed his assaults while abusing the naivety of the minors, his parental authority, their fear of him, and their trust in him," said the indictment.

Authorities have asked for the man and the woman to be under remand until the case is taken up in the court.

The complaint states: "Starting 1989, the mother knew that the father was sexually assaulting the complainants, and assisted him with carrying out his assaults by abandoning her duty to help the complainants, whether by taking them away from the defendant, or by informing the police or the authorities of his abuse so that they can help the complainants, all the while knowing that her actions, or lack thereof, are most probably helpful to the father."
