Members of Knesset from the Coalition and Opposition clashed with one another yesterday during the first reading of an amendment to the Law for Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Conscription that passed in the previous Knesset. The amendment passed with 60 MKs voting in favor and 45 voting against.

“In accordance with the government’s policy on this issue, we should continue to advance the process of meeting the recruitment targets among the haredi sector in military and national-civil service, through cooperation and creating actual means to achieve this goal,” said Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon (Likud) as he presented the amendment during the Knesset plenum yesterday.
