Default Christian and permanent residence visa in Israel - what's with the IDF?


Does anybody know if a 24-year old, Christian man with no Israeli citizenship (but with a permanent residence visa -> "toshav-keva" ) gets drafted into the IDF? Yes or no?

The government homepage showed me the following sentence:

The military service law requires that every permanent resident be
conscripted, regardless of whether or not he holds foreign citizenship.
But on the other hand, I read that only Jewish men get drafted into the IDF, even when they have no Israeli citizenship, BUT a permanent residence visa.

So I am a little confused now.

I used a lot of Google search but i hardly found any information about this topic and also my written Hebrew is not the best, so I hope that somebody in this forum could help me.

Thank you very much for any help!
