Gas bombshell: Netanyahu’s policy struck down by High Court

In a bombshell decision, the High Court of Justice on Sunday struck down Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s landmark natural gas policy, while suspending formally striking the law for one year so that he and the Knesset can fix certain issues.

Although the High Court sustained Netanyahu’s decision as Economy Minister to override the anti-trade commission’s objections to the deal, it found the 10-year price-freezing rule and the passage of the policy without a clear final vote in the Knesset unconstitutional.
