(The two bills aim to provide a legal guarantee for the conditions set by security agencies on the funerals of Palestinian fighters who carried out operations. Both bills seek to thwart court decisions that revoke security agencies’ conditions)

 

Initiator: Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home)
Bill No. 5827/20/F

Initiator: Anat Berko (Likud) and others
Bill No. 5828/20/F

On Wednesday, 24 January 2018, the Knesset approved two bills that seek to provide a legal guarantee for the conditions set by security agencies on the funerals of Palestinian fighters who carried out operations. Both bills aim to thwart court decisions that revoke security agencies’ conditions. In practice, the bills are applicable to Palestinians in Jerusalem and the 19148 territory. In the West Bank, relevant military orders are already in place.

The bills prescribe binding conditions on the implementation of orders. Of these, martyrs’ families will pay financial guarantees to ensure commitment to these orders.

The first bill was proposed by MK Bezalel Smotrich of the Jewish Home party. The other was submitted by MK Anat Berko of the Likud party, together with 18 MKs of the coalition and opposition parties.

MADAR CENTER

The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) is an independent research centre specialising in Israeli affairs, based in Ramallah, Palestine. MADAR was established in 2000 by a group of Palestinian intellectuals and academics, including the late poet Mahmoud Darwish, Dr. Lily Feidy, Dr. Ali Jarbawi, Dr. Ahmad Harb, Mr. Walid Al-Ahmad and Mr. Akram Haniyyeh. The centre was registered as a not-for-profit organisation with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, and obtained a research centre’s operational licensing from the Palestinian Ministry of Information.
