Interior Minister Eli Yishai said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday promised him that the IDF Conversion Bill will not move beyond the debate on the measure being held in the Knesset's House Committee, Army Radio reported.

The bill has caused tension in the coalition with Israel Beiteinu threatening to boycott Wednesday's budget vote if the bill is not discussed and the Haredi parties threatening to leave the coalition if the bill is advanced.

Army Radio quoted Likud officials as saying United Torah Judaism would leave the coalition some time this week because of their objections to the bill.
