Israeli parliament approves law exempting ultra-Orthodox from army service

The Knesset late Monday approved the second and third readings of a bill which effectively postpones a previous law mandating ultra-Orthodox conscription into the IDF.
The new law was voted in by a count of 49 in favor and 36 opposed.
Likud MKs Sharren Haskel and Yoav Kisch did not take part in the vote.
