Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara announced that if the law regulating exemptions received by ultra-Orthodox men from military service doesn't move forward, the Israel Defense Forces will begin the compulsory drafting of Haredi men starting April 1, as the current deadline to pass such a law by March 31 rapidly approaches.

Baharav-Miara voiced the state's response in response to a petition filed in the High Court of Justice that demands to end discrimination and start drafting young people from the ultra-Orthodox community on equal grounds. She emphasized that a suitable legislative framework for increasing ultra-Orthodox enlistment is currently at the center of discussions at the highest political levels, and efforts are being made to make progress.

According to the Attorney General, the Prime Minister's Office and the Ministry of Defense assert that even if the Knesset doesn't pass a law on drafting yeshiva students and graduates of ultra-religious educational institutions before the deadline, the IDF will demand the drafting of Haredi men. At the moment, even a draft version of the law still needs to be prepared.
