Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Sunday that Yisrael Beytenu will continue to push forward the bill that will recommend each and every 18 year be drafted into some form of military service, whether it be national or civilian.

Liberman was reacting to the decision to form a special team to draft universal service legislation based on the Plesner Committee's recommendations.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Liberman reiterated that if the principals of service for everyone and service from the age of 18 are not implemented then Yisrael Beytenu will continue to oppose a law that is based on the the Plesner Committee's recommendations.
