Court cancels injunction preventing removal of E1 tent city
January 16, 2013 16:17
The High Court of Justice on Wednesday canceled a temporary injunction which had prevented Israeli security forces from taking down a tent city set up by Palestinian activists at E1 last week, in protest of Israeli plans to build in the sensitive area between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim.
The court defined the tent city, whose occupants were removed by security forces overnight Saturday, a "magnet for disturbances of public order."
The court added that it would continue to discuss the petition against removing the tents, stating that the removal of the tents was not an "irreversible step."
