BILL TO LE­GALISE OUT­POSTS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

TEL AVIV: Is­rael’s min­is­te­rial com­mit­tee for leg­is­la­tion on Sun­day ap­proved a con­tro­ver­sial draft bill aimed at le­gal­is­ing wild­cat Jewish set­tle­ments built on pri­vate Pales­tinian land, par­lia­men­tary sources said. The bill must now pass through three read­ings in par­lia­ment and also be rat­i­fied by the supreme court be­fore it can be­come law. Sun­day’s vote was rushed in an at­tempt to pre­vent the evac­u­a­tion of the Jewish wild­cat out­post of Amona in the Is­raeli-oc­cu­pied West Bank by the end of the year. – AFP
