Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday that he would reduce the number of IDF soldiers serving in the police by 100 troops.

Barak had hoped to completely eliminate the need to bolster police units with soldiers by June 2012, he said, but "after further situation and in light of all the practicalities," the decision was made to reduce the number instead.
