Gantz on draft law: Things that worked for 73 years don’t fit reality today

After the coalition’s failure in the vote on a new draft law, Defense Minister Benny Gantz says: “Israel needs a draft law and a new plan for [national] service.”

“Things that worked for the country’s first 73 years do not fit the reality of Israel today, in which only half of 18-year-olds enlist. We will bring the draft bill again within three weeks… I will not rest until I complete this national task.”
