Report: Gov't Secretly Advancing Levy Recommendations


The state has recently begun to secretly advance some of the recommendations of a report by a committee headed by the late former Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy, which ruled that Israel is not in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) as an occupier, according to a Tuesday report by the Ha'aretz daily.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon reportedly instructed the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories to prepare to adopt one of the major recommendations of the committee, establishment of a court dedicated to land issues in the region, and that work to that end has been carried out in recent months.
