The High Court of Justice prohibited the operation of sewage purification plant in Ofra, because it was built on private Palestinian land. The decision was made following a petition filed by residents of the Palestinian village of Ein-Yabrud through the organization “Yesh Din”. 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.

In response to a petition to the High Court of Justice against the construction of a sewage purification facility serving the settlement of Ofra and constructed on private Palestinian Law, the state argues that although the construction of the facility was illegal and criminal proceedings have been initiated against the head of municipality who approved it, it should be left in place because of the great financial investment that has already been put into its construction.
