Shas leader Eli Yishai confirmed to Army Radio on Sunday that his party turned to national religious Zionist rabbis asking them to put pressure on Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett to side with Shas, rather than Yesh Atid, on the issue of service equality.

"I turned to rabbis and told them, 'do anything so [Bayit Yehudi] doesn't make a decision about the world of Torah without our consent,'" Yishai said.
