Amidror: If More Hareidim Enlist We Won't Need Reserves


Yaakov Amidror, formerly the head of the National Security Council, spoke about the issue of hareidi enlistment on Sunday, in the wake of the current operation in Gaza, saying that if more hareidim would enlist in the army, the IDF would not have been forced to call up so many reservists.

"If today we had ten more battalions, we could call up fewer reservists,” he said, though he added that Yesh Atid’s hareidi enlistment law was a bad one in his opinion.
