The Peri Committee – which has been tasked with drawing up legislation for drafting haredi men into national service suffered a setback early Monday morning when a committee meeting ended in a deadlock due to a conflict between the head of the committee MK Yaakov Peri and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon. 

Peri and Ya'alon disagreed over the imposition of criminal sanctions on those 18 year old yeshiva students who refuse to enlist, Israel Radio reported.
