Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday called on his coalition partners to reach a solution for the Tal Law within the coming hours or day.

"The fate of the legislation to replace the Tal Law is not clear," Barak said at his Independence party meeting. "I very much hope that the opportunity in the coming hours or day will not be missed and we will find an agreement." 

Barak emphasized the importance of a more equal distribution of the service burden in society, saying that those who served should enjoy the benefits bestowed by the state.

He also discussed the importance of fair pay and benefits accrued to soldiers while they serve, so that after their service they can "embark on civilian life equipped to start on the right foot."
