The leaders of the protest of the reservists against the legal revolution announced today (Tuesday) the cessation of the protest activity, following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's announcement about the delay of the legislation and the beginning of the negotiation process on a compromise outline.

"We - like the majority of the people - do not believe in words, do not believe that there is a real intention to reach a broad agreement. We only believe in actions. At the same time, as value-minded reserve volunteers who led the state every time the state called on us, and after deep thinking and national responsibility for the unity of the people, out of A desire to align with the protest organizations with an emphasis on the Histadrut and the heads of the economy - we decided to give an opportunity to the negotiation process," they wrote in their announcement.

However, the leaders of the protest stated that they are prepared to renew the protest at any moment if the contacts conducted by the political echelon are unsuccessful.

"The protest will be renewed immediately if it turns out that the time allowed for talks is being cynically used," they said.

Earlier today, the leaders of the pilots' protest against the legal revolution announced that they will return to the ranks of the squadrons, for training and operational competence.

A former senior officer in the Air Force, and one of the leaders of the reservists' fight against the legal revolution, said that Netanyahu's announcement "affects us. For him, the idea was real, but now that there is a stop - it is clear that we are going back to the squadrons, going back to training."

Similar to the reservists' protest, the former senior claimed that the struggle is not over yet and that the protesters are "sleeping with their shoes on", which expresses a state of readiness for a return to the struggle.

"Trust in the political captains has not improved," he explained, "yesterday's speech was a speech that did not encourage unification and reconciliation. He simply announced a halt. But we have full confidence in the military captains, the commander of the air force and the chief of staff."

In his statement last night, Netanyahu announced that "out of the desire to prevent a rift in the people", he decided to delay the votes in the second and third readings on the law to change the composition of the committee for the selection of judges.

He claimed that the purpose of the delay is to reach a broad consensus for the legislation during the next session of the Knesset.

"One way or another, we will bring a reform that will restore the balance that was lost between the authorities," he noted.

After Netanyahu announced the delay of the legislation, the country's president Yitzhak Herzog spoke with him and the head of the opposition Yair Lapid and the chairman of the state camp MK Benny Gantz and announced that he is interested in starting the negotiation process.

Following this, Gantz and Lapid announced that they had appointed negotiation teams to represent the parties.
