Jerusalem (TPS) – A bill intended to enable Israeli authorities to expel the family members or accomplices of terrorists passed a second and third reading at a Knesset Internal Affairs Committee session on Wednesday, March 9. The bill is considered contentious by some who argue that it constitutes a contravention of international law.

Despite statements made by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) expressing doubt over the legality of such a bill, MK David Bitan (Likud), one of the joint authors of the bill, has told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the bill does not conflict with international law.
