Likud says it will pass new Regulation Law

The Likud party is vowing to pass a new regulation bill allowing the appropriation of West Bank land after the court struck down a previous one.

“It’s unfortunate that the High Court intervened and disqualified a law that’s important to settlement and its future,” the party says.

Left-wing rights group B’Tselem says the court decision does little to stop the larger settlement enterprise.

“All lands in the West Bank are Palestinian, and even after today’s HCJ (High Court of Justice) ruling Israel will continue to take over more and more Palestinian land. This reality of ongoing land theft by the State of Israel does not fundamentally change today, nor does it diminish the Israeli HCJ’s role in legitimizing it over the years,” it says.
