Pro-Palestinian Israeli NGO Adalah filed a petition to Israel's Supreme Court on Wednesday on behalf of the leadership of 17 Palestinian local authorities calling for nullification of the recently-passed Settlements Law that retroactively legalizes thousands of Jewish settler homes built on private Palestinian land.

The Palestinian petition argues that the newly-approved Israeli legislation contradicts international law and violates the rights of Palestinians in the West Bank.
