Court rules PM cannot ban Shabbat work for Israel Railways staff

The High Court issues an interim ruling stopping Netanyahu from barring Israel Railways staff from working on Shabbat, Channel 10 reports.

The injunction comes following a petition by Meretz leader Zehava Galon at the weekend.

“The court must put an end to the prime minster’s unbridled frenzy on the backs of thousands of passengers,” she said Saturday, after Netanyahu delayed infrastructure work during the Jewish day of rest. The work was carried out on Saturday night and Sunday instead, causing major disruptions to train users.
