Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said he will support legislation that looks to ban national service volunteers from working in the organization B’Tselem at the beginning of the next Knesset session.

National service is the civilian alternative for those who cannot serve in the IDF for religious, medical or other reasons.

Netanyahu's remarks came after B'Tselem claimed that Israeli settlements are the cause of the conflict in the United Nations Security Council meeting on Friday.
