High Court gives green light to gas exports
The High Court of Justice has rejected the petition against the cabinet's gas export decision.
The significance of the ruling is that gas exports can now go ahead, especially from the Leviathan field in accordance with the cabinet decision last June. The petitioners argued that the cabinet did not have the authority to decide on such an important national matter and that Knesset legislation is required.
In June the cabinet ruled that up to 40% of Israel's gas reserves can be exported.
The seven judge panel hearing the petition was Supreme Court President Asher Grunis, Vice President Miriam Naor, Edna Arbel, Elyakim Rubinstein, Salim Joubran, Esther Hayut, and Noam Sohlberg.
