Israel’s long-standing peace treaty with the Palestinians will soon be over after the country’s supreme court ruled that it was unconstitutional.
In a 2-1 decision, the Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday ruled that the agreement, which took effect on July 1, was illegal.
The court ruled in favor of a petition filed by Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations which said the deal is not based on Israeli interests and that the Palestinians are entitled to a free and independent state in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The decision came after the Israeli Supreme Court rejected a bid to block the deal from going into effect in March 2019, saying that it violates international law.
Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded by saying that the government is confident that the court will uphold the court’s ruling.
“We are confident that justice will be done, that justice is served, that this decision will not be challenged,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said.
The Palestinian Ministry of National Resistance said that it is committed to continuing its legal battle against the deal, and that it will appeal the ruling to the High Court of Justice.
The Palestinian side, meanwhile, said that the international community will not recognize Israel as a Jewish state unless it fully complies with the Palestinian right to statehood and security.
In July, the Palestinian Authority signed a deal with Israel in which the two sides agreed to the establishment of a Palestinian state.
The deal was widely seen as a response to a surge in Palestinian violence following the murder of Israeli settlers by Palestinian militants in the occupied West Bank.
But Israel’s security establishment has repeatedly accused the Palestinians of violating the terms of the deal and vowed to continue its fight to establish a state in East Jerusalem, the Westbank and the Gaza Strip.
