Likud Beytenu, Kadima and the Tzipi Livni Party removed images of IDF soldiers from their campaign advertisements on Monday, following a ruling by the Central Election Committee.

Committee chairman Judge Elyakim Rubinstein decided the parties may not use soldiers in their ads, following complaints.

The Election Law forbids parties from using the IDF in its campaign in a way that makes it seem as if the military belongs to or support the party.

The committee also banned the Bayit Yehudi from using soldiers in its campaign advertisements last month, and is investigating complaints that the party has not stopped doing so.
