The Jerusalem District Court for Administrative Matters ordered, on Thursday, a temporary injunction on the state’s decision to expel 3,000 foreign construction workers by the end of June.

The petition filed by the employees claims that the expulsion violated agreements between the state and the workers, 99 percent of whom are Chinese nationals, who had come to Israel assuming that they would be allowed to stay and work for the duration of their permit, roughly five years.
