Knesset lawfare subcommittee holds first meeting

A motion to wave the Palestinian flag at the UN is part of a campaign to delegitimize Israel, MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) said at Thursday’s inaugural meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Subcommittee on Lawfare, which she leads.

Livni said at the meeting’s opening that the committee will deal with legal defensive measures for IDF soldiers and will discuss how the government can go on the legal offensive, as well.

“This committee will deal with lawfare not only to see how we can defend ourselves, but also to try to change international trends against Israel in a legal context and how to deal with moves the Palestinians are trying to make over Israel’s head,” the former justice minister explained.
