MK Ophir Paz-Pines (Labor) said on Monday that IDF Human Resources head Maj.-Gen. Elazar Stern had betrayed his post by remaining silent in the face of the mass draft-dodging that the Tal Law made possible. Meretz MK Avshalom Vilan also criticized Stern over the Tal Law, saying that the person who made it legitimate for yeshiva students not to serve was to blame. Stern said earlier that the government was not doing enough to combat army service evasion and draft-dodging.
