JNS.orgThe Israel Defense Forces has decided to cut by 40 percent the number of soldiers it allows to complete their compulsory military service in the Israel Police, Shin Bet, and Mossad, an IDF Manpower Directorate official told the Knesset’s Equal Burden Committee on Wednesday.

IDF Brig. Gen. Gadi Agmon said the decision to make the cut stemmed from a manpower shortage, Israel Hayom reported. Several thousand soldiers are currently serving outside of the IDF.
