High Court rules Israel Railways can perform work on Shabbat

September 6, 2016 15:47

The High Court of Justice on Tuesday issued an interim order permitting Israel Railways to continue to perform work on Shabbat. Technically, the High Court said it was just confirming the state's position filed earlier in a written response on the issue.

The High Court order also froze any left over order to stop working on Shabbat, to the extent there was any left over order, due to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's order to halt work last weekend.
