      PM: Cabinet to Extend Tal Law

      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Monday morning, that the government is likely to extend the Tal Law, giving military deferments to draft-age yeshiva students, when the matter comes up on Sunday.

      Netanyahu noted that the number of yeshiva students being inducted into the Israel Defense Forces had tripled since 2009.
