Cabinet exempts Haredi yeshiva students from IDF

The cabinet secretly decided two weeks ago to cancel compulsory military service for ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students, despite the objections of the Israel Defense Forces. The decision, which followed pressure by the treasury and ultra-Orthodox coalition parties, was made during the intense debates on the Economic Arrangements Law in mid-July. Since the move was not part of the Economic Arrangements Law it was not published and few people knew about it.
