An Israeli teacher who was suspended from her job after she refused to serve in an Israeli army unit for refusing to wear a burqa while on duty has said she will resume her education.
The decision came as the head of the Israeli education department, which administers the army, said he was considering the issue.
The Education Ministry on Tuesday said that Dr. Shira Shachar had been suspended pending a probe into the matter.
The ministry said she had been dismissed on grounds that she did not abide by regulations for wearing the niqab.
A statement from the ministry said the matter had been forwarded to the legal department of the army for further investigation.
The statement said Shachara had been on leave for two weeks, with no explanation given for the suspension.
The IDF does not comment on personnel matters.
Last year, a female military officer in the Israeli army was suspended after she was photographed in a niqa in front of soldiers.
The soldier had refused to take part in an online exercise that was to test the effectiveness of her burqa.
The soldier was later fired for violating the military’s dress code, but she was allowed to return later.
