An expanded seven justice panel of the High Court of Justice on Wednesday effectively asked the state not to use a law passed decades ago to confiscate land in east Jerusalem from Palestinians, but also said it was powerless to strike the law completely.

The court also said that in those rare cases where the state applied the law, it should only be applied upon approval by the Attorney-General himself and by high-ranking ministers.
