The left-wing Gush Shalom organization warned on Thursday that it would petition the High Court of Justice if a bill approved for second and final readings the previous day by the Knesset Law Committee was passed by the plenum.

The bill calls for empowering admissions committees in rural settlements of up to 500 families to refuse admission to the community for reasons of social unsuitability.
