      Ya'alon to Ask for Re-Vote on Shortening of IDF Service

      Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon is expected to ask the Shaked Committee, which is working on the new draft law, to vote again on the shortening of army service for men from three years to 32 months.

      Sources close to Ya’alon said on Monday night that the committee's decision to shorten the service for men without approving an extension of service for women at the same time would hurt the IDF. Those sources added that “what happened at the Shaked Committee is contrary to previous agreements.”
