A memorandum of the Security Service Law for the placement of military veterans in the Israel Police and in the prison service will be submitted to the Knesset table tomorrow (Sunday).
According to the law, the placement of hundreds of servicemen and women in prisons will be terminated immediately and without delay within six months.

They also added that "the pressure is not It came not from the IDF but from the Ministry of National Security."
