Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that the Plesner report recommendations are "moving us in the right direction" to solve the Tal Law crisis.

Netanyahu added that in his view the solution will include some form of personal sanctions on haredim who continue to avoid the military, stating that "one who shirks" in his obligation to do military service "will not receive the same benefits as one who serves."

Meanwhile, Channel 2 news reported that Kadima has given Netanyahu an ultimatum that he must accept the Plesner report recommendations by Monday at 2:00 p.m., although other Israeli media seemed to indicate that contacts between Netanyahu and Kadima party leader Shaul Mofaz could lead to a deal long before.
