      Shas Quits Shaked Committee Over Criminal Sanctions


      Shas chairman MK Aryeh Deri announced on Monday that his party will resign from the Shaked Committee, which is working on the new draft law that would see hareidim enlist in the army.

      Sources in the party said that Deri will recommend to the Council of Torah Sages that the party no longer send its representative to the committee’s meetings. Shas was represented in the committee by MK Ariel Atias.
