Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu assured members of United Torah Judaism (UTJ) Tuesday morning that haredim (ultra-Orthodox) would be full partners in discussing a Tal Law replacement, Israel Radio reported.

The Tal Law, which allows haredim to permanently defer military service, will have to be replaced by August, when it is due to expire.



According to the report, Netanyahu updated MKs Ya'acov Litzman and Moshe Gafni on the coalition early Tuesday morning, and assured them that the new law would not forcibly draft haredim, but create an inclusive framework.

UTJ reacted positively to Netanyahu's decision to form a unity government, according to the report.
