Deputy A-G: Withdrawal of national service slots is unlawful

Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) is not backing down from his decision to withdraw national service slots from B’Tselem and the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), despite a letter sent by Deputy Attorney General Dina Zilber on Thursday morning explaining that Ariel’s directive has no basis in the law and is therefore void.

After the UN Human Rights Council report on Operation Protective Edge was published on Tuesday, the head of the Bayit Yehudi party, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, spoke sharp words of criticism from the Knesset floor aimed at the left wing Israeli organizations that helped compile the report.
