Defense Minister Ehud Barak responded Monday to the government's difficulties in a finding a replacement for the Tal Law, saying "a way must be found to bridge the gaps and find a way to that will honor the justified public expectation and the High Court ruling to more equally distribute the service burden."

Barak called on the political echelon to solve the problem through dialogue and to leave the IDF out of the argument.

The defense minister made the comments after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Monday that the Keshev Committee, tasked with increasing ultra-Ortodox and Arab enlistment in the IDF and national service, was dissolved.
