Mofaz: Time to Enlist Everyone


Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz called on the government on Tuesday night to implement the mandatory military service law for all Israeli citizens, following the expiration of the Tal Law.

“The court ruled that granting a sweeping deferment of service to an entire public is not in the authority of the defense minister under the law,” said Mofaz. “With the expiration of the Tal Law, the government must act to implement the Security Service Law to all citizens of Israel, including yeshiva students.”
