Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz met Thursday and discussed how to equalize the burden of IDF service, in an hour-long meeting.
Ahead of Netanyahu's meetings with Mofaz and other faction heads, Coalition chairman Ze'ev Elkin said that the differences between Kadima and Likud are not that great, saying that neither are opposed to imposing personal sanctions on those who do not perform national or military service.
Speaking with Israel Radio Thursday morning, Elkin asserted that a solution could be found if Netanyahu makes clear to the ultra-Orthodox (haredi) political leadership that if no solution is found by August 1, Israel's military draft law will be applied equally across all sectors.
