Jerusalem - Female Officers Warn Of Mass Haredi Draft Into IDF
Jerusalem - Some 20 female officers, including high ranking reservists, sent a letter to the Plesner Committee, tasked with finding alternatives to Tal Law and regulating haredim’s military service, warning that the mass recruitment of ultra-Orthodox soldiers will have an adverse effect on women serving in Israel’s armed forces.
The letter, sent to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Deputy PM Shaul Mofaz, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and the Committee Chairman MK Yohanan Plesner (Kadima), said that such a move would eventually increase the exclusion of women in the military and infringe on their rights.
