The State Prosecutor's Office announced Wednesday that the government had agreed to postpone the illegal construction of a synagogue in the northern West Bank town of Elmatan pending a court hearing on the matter.

The announcement came in response to an Elmatan resident's petition for a decree forbidding the blocking of the synagogue's construction until the High Court can determine whether a further hearing is necessary.
