Minister for Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya'alon said Thursday that the government may shrink over efforts to replace the Tal Law on ultra-Orthodox IDF enlistment, Army Radio reported.

"The coalition may shrink, but we will survive," Ya'alon said following the latest meeting with Kadima MK Yohanan Plesner, who headed the Keshev Committee on the issue.

Casting a further negative shadow on the prospects of success, Ya'alon added that the two sides may not be able to reach an agreement by the Supreme Court's August 1 deadline.

"The government will be able to continue managing the situation until there is a new law at some point in the future," Ya'alon said.
