The Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned on Monday in “the strongest terms,” the Israeli endorsement of a bill that aims to impose Israeli law on the occupied West Bank, Wafa news agency reported

According to Wafa report, the bill, drafted by the Israeli Minister of Justice, denies the Palestinians access to the Israeli High Court, especially in cases of their rights in their land, and refers them to the Jerusalem District Court.

"The bill is a part of a number of racist expansionist laws, which are passed by the Israeli government with the aim of strengthening the right-wing to rule in the State of Israel, which will accelerate the theft the rest of the occupied Palestinian territory.” Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The justice system in Israel as a whole is an integral part of the occupation system, and equality cannot be achieved between a nation that confiscates and settles on the land of another nation. This law aims at legislating settlements, legitimizing and expanding them, and facilitating the confiscation of private Palestinian land".

"The proposed bill is part of Israel's right-wing efforts to impose Israeli law on the occupied West Bank, as part of the occupying state, to deepen the systematic and dangerous system of apartheid in Israel,” concluded the statement.
