In an 8-1 ruling, Israel's High Court struck down as unconstitutional the so-called Settlement Regulation Law, on the grounds that it violates the property rights and equality of Palestinians, and gives clear priority to the interests of Israeli settlers over Palestinian residents of the West Bank. The controversial 2017 legislation sought to enable Israeli authorities to retroactively legalize settlement homes and outposts built on private Palestinian land while compensating the owners.

KAN's Naomi Segal asked Prof. Amichai Cohen, a senior fellow at the Israel Democracy Institute and member of the law faculty at the Ono Academic College, about the implications of the court decision.
