Israel's defense ministry and the IDF are working on a plan to enable haredi men to enlist in the IDF under conditions suitable for their lifestyle, according to Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. This comes after the government's failure to develop a new plan for haredi IDF service and a Supreme Court ruling that haredi men with expired deferrals must enlist. Gallant emphasized the importance of social stability and national security, and requested the IDF Chief of Staff to present the committee's work as soon as possible. The IDF has reportedly begun summoning haredi men for pre-draft examinations, although the IDF denies that this is related to the changed legal situation.
