A new law passed by the Israeli parliament allows the Israeli government to issue “free” land titles to landowners and “owners” of their properties in order to protect them from encroachment and the threat of flooding.
In a landmark ruling on Thursday, the Land Ministry approved a law that would allow the state to issue land titles and other documents on behalf of private owners and landowners to prevent flooding.
The bill allows for “ownership rights to their land and to their personal properties and to the area of their lands and to private owners who have acquired rights to them and their personal property in accordance with a plan or with the regulations of the municipality.”
Under the law, land titles can be issued for land that is privately owned by a group of persons or a municipality and the government may grant or deny the granting of the title.
The owner or the owner’s heirs would then have the right to enforce the terms of the land title and the law allows for the issuance of a certificate of title, a certificate that lists the owner and his or her name and the date the deed was issued.
The law would also allow the government to impose conditions on land titles.
The “owner” can choose to pay the owner an amount of money to compensate for damage to the owner or property or a fee for the cost of building or repairing the property.
The land title law would not apply to any private ownership rights granted by the state, but the government could issue certificates of title for land rights acquired by private owners.
Land titles, like most deeds of trust in Israel, are issued to private individuals in order for them to own property and their interests are protected.
However, in order not to conflict with other laws governing land, the law specifies that the land titles are for private use only and not transferable.
The Land Ministry has previously said that land titles could be issued only on “owners’ and owners’ heirs’ behalf” and that the law is only intended to provide compensation to private property owners for damage caused by flooding and to protect “owners from encroaching upon private property and the danger of flooding.”
However, the government has said that the legislation does not require the owners of private properties to pay for the damage caused to their property by flooding, nor does it prohibit a municipality from considering the value of a private property if its value is determined by a court.
In an interview with The Jerusalem Times, the head of the Land and Infrastructure Authority (LIA), Yehuda Weinstein, said that it was “not possible” to enforce a land title without the government.
“The government is responsible for protecting the property and it has the power to issue these certificates.
We have to keep in mind that the government does not regulate any of these things,” he said.
The legislation is not likely to make a big difference for Palestinians who own land, who tend to be very poor, who live in areas that face severe water and sewerage shortages, and who are often forced to move when water levels rise due to flooding.
But it could impact the country’s poor and marginalised communities, particularly the large Palestinian towns in the West Bank.
In recent years, Palestinians have been pushing for land titles in areas of the West Jerusalem and East Jerusalem settlements in order “to compensate” for the loss of their homes, businesses, and infrastructure, as well as for the displacement of the Palestinian residents who were evicted from their homes during the recent wave of Israeli settlement construction in the area.
Many of the Palestinians who are currently in these settlements are members of the Muslim majority community in the settlement blocs, which are located on the eastern edge of Jerusalem.
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), more than 6,000 Palestinians were forcibly evicted in 2016, including around 4,000 in the illegal Jewish settlements in the Old City, in the northern West Bank, and in the southern West Bank districts of Nablus and Jenin.
In addition, about 700 Palestinians were killed and thousands of others wounded.
In recent years the Israeli authorities have stepped up their eviction of Palestinians from areas of Jerusalem, and on Tuesday, Israeli police began a crackdown on the Palestinians living in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, a major holy site that is considered holy by Muslims.
The Israeli government has also been cracking down on the Palestinian community in East Jerusalem and the West Ramallah region.
In 2016, an Israeli court ordered the confiscation of the home of a Palestinian man and his family in East Ramallah, and ordered them to leave the area by Monday, according to The Jerusalem District News.
Earlier this month, Israeli forces arrested an Arab man who allegedly stole $100 from a cash machine at the West Wall’s Temple Mount, a site that Muslims say is the third holiest site in Islam and which is also considered by Jews to be the Temple Mount.
The man, identified only as Abu Mardam, was released from prison after posting bail.
