The government on Sunday passed the first reading of a bill which aims to combat the phenomenon of girls avoiding being drafted into the IDF by pretending to be religious.
The bill calls for surveillance of the young women after they are released from the IDF.
Speaking against the bill, Deputy Health Minister Ya'acov Litzman said it would cause a coalition crisis if it were made law.
