The announcement was made during a visit by a group of Israeli Knesset (parliament) members to a conscription center, Israeli Channel 2 reported on Sunday.
The Israeli military speculates that the percentage of refusals in the army would reach 60 by the end of 2020. This is not the first time that the Israeli military is facing refusals to serve in the army.
In 2003, there was also an increase in the number of high-profile refusals in the Israel army.
