New Israeli bill seen as move for annexation of Palestinian land

Observers are saying a number of recent developments indicate that Israel is attempting to extend its jurisdiction over more occupied Palestinian land.

by

    Israeli government ministers have advanced a bill that would allow land disputes in the occupied West Bank to be settled by a district court, rather than being considered by the High Court.

    The proposed change in the law follows several High Court rulings against settlers.

    Palestinians view the proposed change as part of a wider process of gradual annexation, which imposes Israeli jurisdiction over occupied land.
