The High Court of Justice on Monday called a sweeping ban against Palestinian students studying at Israeli universities unreasonable and gave the army 60 days to establish criteria for admitting at least some Palestinians into the country for studies. The court also ordered the state to allow Sawsan Salameh, a Palestinian doctoral student in chemistry who won a full scholarship from the Hebrew University, to continue her studies beyond the six months granted her so far by the state. The interim decision came in the wake of a petition filed on Salameh's behalf by the human rights organization Gisha (Access.)
