The State Attorney's Office on Thursday submitted a request to the High Court of Justice asking it to delay acting on petitions submitted by settler organizations against the 10-month construction moratorium. The state is demanding that the court not intercede in a government decision, as such a decision is political in nature. The state's legal representatives also requested from the High Court of Justice to refrain from ordering an interim injunction that would temporarily reverse the freeze order, while the court deliberates over the submitted petitions. Such a move, the state contends, would cause "enormous political damage" to Israel.
