JLAC Succeeds in canceling the demolition order regarding Arab Al-Rashaydeh School in Al-Nweimah
 
The Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center- JLAC has succeeded in canceling the demolition order regarding the Arab Al-Rashaydeh School in the Al-Nweimah area (servicing a community of 320 people). The Israeli Civil Administration- ICA issued a demolition order for the school in June 2016, with the excuse of it lacking a building permit. After exhausting all legal proceedings before of the ICA (which insisted on executing the demolition order), JLAC was prompted to appeal before the Israeli High Court through the Center's lawyer Mr. Mohammad Abbasi on August 18th, 2016. An immediate injunction was issued preventing the ICA from carrying out the demolition order, with the demolition order against the school recently cancelled.

Seventeen Palestinian municipalities and three human rights organizations from the West Bank, Israel, and Gaza Strip jointly petitioned the Israeli Supreme Court on 8 February 2017 to cancel the highly controversial Settlement Regularization Law on the grounds that it violates international humanitarian law and is unconstitutional.

The petition was filed by Attorneys Suhad Bishara and Mysanna Morany of Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and Attorney Shaheen Suleiman of the Jerusalem Legal Aid Center (JLAC) on behalf of the local Palestinian authorities (15 rural councils and two municipalities). The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights in Gaza also joined the case as a petitioner.
