Security sources have expressed anger over the result of a vote taken by the Knesset’s Shaked Committee on Monday, and criticism is being heard in senior defense establishment circles over the way the committee has conducted itself.

The fact that the Shaked Committee, whose full name is the Special Committee for the Equal Sharing of the Burden Bill, voted to cut men’s military service (except for those in combat roles) by four months, to 32, but failed to increase the service time of female soldiers from 24 months, is a sore point in the eyes of the defense establishment.

As a result, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon will seek a revote within the committee, following his return from the Singapore Air Show next week.
