The High Court of Justice prohibited the operation of sewage purification plant in Ofra, because it was built on private Palestinian land.

During the hearings, the State told the Court that there were failures in the procedure to establish the institute, and that it was built without the required permits, and on Palestinian land.

Hundreds of policemen came to the Bedouin city of Rahat, in the Negev, to demolish a mosque that was built there half a year ago, without building permits. Thousands of residents gathered on the spot and started throwing stones at the police, which responded by shooting tear gas (Hebrew). Member of Knesset Taleb Alsana (Ra’am-Ta’al) said that “the State of Israel, which ignores Supreme Court rulings about anything involving the illegal construction in the Jewish sector, comes like a thief in the night to demolish a mosque in the very heart of Rahat city.”
