Sakhnin residents withdrew a petition to the High Court of Justice on Thursday against the opening of a new Employment Service Office in the Terodion Industrial Center after Supreme Court Justice Dorit Beinish made it clear she would reject it. The petitioners, represented by Sawsan Zaher of the Adalah human rights organization had asked the court to cancel the decision because the new location forced Sakhnin residents to take a bus and walk 600 meters to the new location from the bus stop on the main road. Beinish rejected the petitioners' claim that the government decision to move the office proved there was an overall discriminatory policy to remove government offices from Israeli Arab towns and cities.
