The High Court of Justice struck down the state's migrant policy on Monday night in an unprecedented grand conflagration between the courts and the Knesset.

By a 7-2 vote the court told the state it must close the Holot "open" detention center within 90 days and freeze certain limitations on migrants' movements, starting Wednesday.

By a 6-3 vote, the court struck down the constitutionality of holding newly arriving illegal migrants in closed detention.
