The Cabinet unanimously passed Finance Minister Kahlon’s proposal to raise the salaries of conscript soldiers by approximately 50%. In the framework of his proposal, NIS 600 million per annum will be invested in improving the basic conditions of conscript soldiers.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The increase will take effect in December; there will be additional increases in the future.”

Finance Minister Kahlon said that the rise is “still not enough, but we are on the right track; the step we have taken is a significant one.”

A joint Finance Ministry, Defense Ministry and Justice Ministry committee evaluated the implementation of the decision and decided to recommend raising the salaries of all conscript soldiers during their time of service.

See the following table:
