The Ministerial Committee for Legislation is due to discuss Sunday a bill that would legalize construction on private Palestinian land. According to the bill, initiated by Habayit Hayehudi MK Zevulun Orlev, Palestinian owners could not demand the clearing of residential construction on their land if they failed to claim it for 4 years since the construction’s conclusion. The bill would allow the court to compensate the claimant or provide him with an alternative tract of land that would both be nearby and of equal value.
