Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz attempted to settle their dispute over how to equalize the burden of IDF service on Wednesday evening following a clash between their representatives on the issue, Vice Premier Moshe Ya'alon and MK Yohanan Plesner.

Sources close to Mofaz said that in the meeting with Netanyahu there was neither a breakthrough or a breakdown.

“In all negotiations, there are moments of tension, like what has happened today," Mofaz said in a speech to 150 yeshiva students in Jerusalem following his meeting with Netanyahu. "At the moment we’re discussing the actual text of the law and we’re making progress. The negotiations will continue tomorrow. I don’t want to establish deadlines, which will only make more problems. The deadline will be established by the results [of the negotiations]."
