Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich on Monday slammed the government's efforts to draft new legislation for incorporating haredim into national service, saying "there will be enlistment of fewer haredim with more headlines."

Speaking at a Labor Party faction meeting, Yacimovich called coalition infighting between Likud and Yesh Atid over elements of the haredi draft bill, "a battle of spin."



"Everyone in this government is too busy with politics and arm-twisting to notice that all of the goals they set for themselves are falling by the wayside," Yacimovich said.

"The enlistment of haredim, as things appear now, will completely fall apart," she added.
