The High Court of Justice grants the new government’s request to delay the razing of a Bedouin village in the West Bank that Israel says was built illegally.

The postponement gives the government until September 5 to respond to the ruling.

But the High Court says it won’t grant any further postponement, after then-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested and received multiple delays since the demolition was approved by the Supreme Court in 2018.

“No more,” the court writes in the ruling.
