Orders from Above? All Yesh Atid MKs Share Perry's Post

In what appeared to be “orders from above”, all the MKs from the Yesh Atid party shared on Thursday evening a post by Science and Technology Minister Yaakov Perry, who headed the committee on equal IDF service for all Israelis.

In the post, Perry wrote that after more than two months of intensive work, the committee he headed had submitted its law regarding equal sharing in the burden of service.

"This is in fact an enlistment reform which ensures that, for the first time, hareidim will also serve their country, they will bear the burden,” wrote Perry. “Each and every one of the six ministers in the committee understood the responsibility which lay on their shoulders and together we developed a real reform - with clear objectives, enforcement, sanctions, incentives and tailored frameworks for military and civilian service.”
