Israel: High Court partially overturns state compensation ban

On 12 December, the Israeli High Court of Justice partially invalidated the amendment to the Civil Wrongs Law, referred to as the “Intifada law”, which barred civilians from claiming compensation from the Israeli Government for damages caused by the Israeli Defence Forces’ operations in the Gaza Stripe and the West Bank. The Court did not overturn the provisions preventing claims for harms suffered by “citizens of enemy states or members of terrorist organizations.”
