There are still large gaps in coalition negotiations between Shas and Likud Beytenu, Shas leader Eli Yishai told Israel Radio on Wednesday morning.

"Talks are advancing, but [things] are not necessarily working out," Yishai said. "There are still gaps on budget issues," he added.

On the topic of enlisting yeshiva students to army service, Yishai reiterated that Shas will "maintain the principle that whoever wants to study Torah, will study Torah."

Yishai added that "there's a difference between haredim and yeshiva students," and stated many haredim do enlist in the army or do civil service.
