Liberman opposed to cuts in army service for men

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman says he is opposed to planned cuts in the amount of time men have to serve in the army.

From 2020 compulsory military service is supposed to drop to 30 months. Currently men serve 32 months, down from the traditional 3 years.

But Liberman says “we need to return to 36 months,” according to Haaretz, and will speak with the Finance Ministry about it.
