On Monday, 6th August, Israeli Interior Minister signed a new order that prevents immigrants within Israel and Palestinians from heading to the Israeli Judicial system to appeal deportation, unless they have an Israeli ID or passport.
Israeli newspaper Haaretz revealed that the new bill mainly affect the Palestinians who want to submit issues of compensation against the Israeli army, and the immigrants in Israel who do not have passports would be prevented from going to the labour courts to file complaints against their employers if they were injured in road accidents, go to the courts if they were arrested or even complain against the Israeli Interior Ministry if they were to be deported from Israel.
Association for Civil Rights in Israel attorney Oded Feller said that these new orders greatly affect Palestinians, who submit countless pleas to Israeli courts annually. Feller said that the majority don’t possess Israeli passports.
It has been decided that these orders would be put into practice at the beginning of the next month.
