May 26, 2013 15:00

Hatnua announced Sunday that it is conditioning its support for the latest bill for equalizing the equality of the burden, on the requirement that the length of service for national religious hesder yeshiva students will match that of haredi soldiers.

The ministerial committee headed by Science, Technology and Space Minister Yaakov Peri of Yesh Atid will meet for a marathon session to begin on Sunday evening. According to the initial draft of the bill, hesder Yeshiva students are slated to serve for 17 months, and Bayit Yehudi has already made it clear that it opposes any attempt to extend this.

Hatuna released a statement saying that while Hatuna believes that the purpose of the law was to create equality in the burden, the proposal outline distorts the principle of the bill, and discriminated between the haredim and the hesder yeshiva students.
