Israel passes law meant to draft ultra-Orthodox

Published: 03.12.14, 11:35 / Israel News

Israeli lawmakers have passed a contentious law meant to draft ultra-Orthodox Jews into the army.

 

The issue lies at the heart of a cultural war on the place of the ultra-Orthodox in Israeli society.

 

The matter featured prominently in elections last year that led to the establishment of a center-right government, which has pushed for the draft reforms.

 

Wednesday's vote passed 67-1 in the Knesset. The opposition boycotted the vote to protest what it says are strong-arm tactics by the ruling coalition. (AP)
