Senior nuclear scientists in the Israel Atomic Energy Commission are considering resigning in protest against the government's judicial reform plan, Channel 13 reported on Tuesday.
The groups of scientists, dozens as per the report, are still discussing whether or not to resign.
These scientists are reportedly targeted across the globe due to the nature of their occupation and have had security detail attached following Iranian threats on their lives.
The report continues, adding that any decision is unlikely to be taken as a united group, but rather as individuals.
Channel 13's report comes amid a crisis in the Israeli military after tens of thousands of IDF reservists announce a halt to their service in light of the government's reform, with more continuing to end their service following Monday's passing of the Law to Cancel the Reasonableness Clause in the Knesset.
The IDF says it still remains ready for war, but recognizes that the process of harm to the military’s cohesion and readiness has already started and could significantly worsen in the coming weeks.
