Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday said that the government would find the best solution for all citizens before the Tal Law is brought to a vote in the Knesset.
The prime minister defended the government’s decision to bring the Tal
Law to a Knesset vote when it expires in six months, saying that the
previous two governments automatically extended the law regarding haredi
(ultra-Orthodox) deferrals of IDF service.
“We know there has to be a better solution, and we will bring the government’s proposal to the Knesset,” Netanyahu said.
He refused to answer questions from the reservists as to whether the “better solution” is a new bill or not.
Netanyahu told reservists attending Monday’s Likud faction meeting that
they are “the salt of the earth, and the state owes them a lot.”
