Israel’s speaker of the Knesset blocked a bill that would have drafted yeshiva students. Dan Tichon said the proposed legislation, submitted by opposition leader Ehud Barak, was similar to another bill defeated by the Knesset in December. Under Israeli parliamentary law, a six-month waiting period is required before a bill similar to one that has been defeated can be submitted.
