The Knesset plenum approved in its preliminary reading a bill that would more than double the funds given to soldiers who complete their mandatory service.

The first bill, proposed by MK Moshe Matalon (Israel Beiteinu), seeks to gradually increase the grant that combat soldiers receive upon completing three years of mandatory IDF service, from the current NIS 9,300 to NIS 20,000 by 2016.
