The High Court recommended on Monday not to discuss the petition put forward by activist organization "Gush Shalom" calling for the broadening of the authority of the Turkel Commission unless the commission requests to investigate soldiers. 

The government had already decided to broaden the committee's authority to allow it to investigate witnesses, but "Gush Shalom" requested from the court that the committee be given the power to investigate soldiers as well.

The High Court discussion was halted so that both the prosecution and "Gush Shalom" can consider the recommendation and prepare a response to the court.
