To a rowdy melee of cheers and boos, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked effectively declared war on the High Court of Justice on Monday, hitting it with blow after blow for the recent decision declaring the natural gas policy unconstitutional.

Shaked said she fears that the world will start to view Israel as a "country which eats its investors."

She added that "the significance of the decision...could cost the government billions of shekels."

The justice minister said "the decision caused great harm to Israel" by entering into political and economic issues beyond its purview.
