Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman visited "Camp Sucker" at Tel Aviv's Arlozorov Train Station on Tuesday, set up by activists calling for all citizens to serve in the IDF or national service.

The foreign minister said that he would like to see all 18-year-olds in Israel serve in the IDF or national service and his Yisrael Beyteynu party would vote for the "simplest bill which answers the problem."

Liberman was also expected to meet with Kadima MK Yochanan Plesner on Tuesday. Plesner is heading the Keshev Committee which is expected to propose a bill to replace the Tal Law by June 28.

In February, the High Court of Justice struck down the “Tal Law,” enacted in 2002, which had provided a legal framework for full-time yeshiva students to indefinitely defer military or national service.
