Women's Service in IDF to Stay at 2 Years

The Shaked Committee on equality in military and civilian service decided, Tuesday morning, not to lengthen the two-years of women's service currently required in the Israel Defense Forces.

Legislation headed for the Knesset included a clause that will allow the Defense Minister to apply regulations extending the term of service in 2016, as needed.
