Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday downplayed infighting within his coalition over the contents of draft legislation to increase haredi enlistment in national service.
Speaking at a Likud Beytenu faction meeting, Netanyahu said, "After 65 years, we stand before a historic change that will go a long way toward equalizing the burden. Until the new law is applied, we will see many more headlines and crises, both imagined and real."
Netanyahu added: "I am sure we can find solutions to the isolated clauses which remain unresolved. There will be a law."
