Shaked's outline set a limit on the entry of Ukrainian refugees into Israel, of 5,000 people • Adv. Tomer Warsaw, who filed the lawsuit: "The Minister of the Interior acted in violation of the provisions of the law" • Matan Peleg, chairman of "If You Will": Destroying the foundations of the State of Israel, it is a matter of trampling on the powers of the Minister of the Interior "

The High Court today decided to repeal the Shaked outline limiting the number of Ukrainian refugees, and ruled that they could come to Israel for a period of three months without filling out an online form, without the limit of 5,000 refugees set.

The High Court ruled unanimously that reality shows that the state's fears of flooding refugees are not connected to reality. Legal expenses.

Advocate Tomer Warsaw, who filed the High Court against the outline on behalf of the refugees, responded: "We are very pleased that the Supreme Court accepted all our claims and ruled that the Minister of the Interior acted in violation of the provisions of the law.

We are happy that the citizens of Ukraine - who are still at war - can find peace in the State of Israel alongside their relatives and friends, and we are happy that we were able to help, even slightly, to facilitate war refugees.

My office will continue to support and protect against human rights violations.

"It is important to clarify that from now on there is no more Almond outline, no more restriction of entry for only 5,000 people, no more filling out a digital form. The citizens of Ukraine will receive the same treatment they received before - and will be able to come to Israel without visas."

"Post-Zionist ruling"

Matan Peleg, chairman of the "If You Will" movement: "High Court judges continue to rampage and destroy the foundations of the State of Israel, this time by crushing Israel's entry policy and trampling on the powers of the Minister of the Interior. Ayelet Shaked must inform the High Court The outline, and therefore it ignores its ruling.

At the same time, the national camp must understand that the State of Israel must rehabilitate the Israeli legal system before there can be such a state, because of the post-Zionist rulings of the Supreme Court.

"This is a process that can only be started with the passage of an overruling clause by a simple majority, since otherwise - no amendment on any issue can be made.

This is a fatal violation of the rule of law, the ability of the State of Israel to exist as a democratic state, and in general as a reformed state, and all with one goal - to erase the Jewish identity of the state. "

Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, in response to the High Court's decision: "The policy I outlined regarding the entry of tourists from Ukraine has proven to be a success.

On the one hand - we allowed Israelis' relatives to come to Israel, and even allowed them to work, and on the other hand - we built a responsible mechanism that would regulate entry into the country and prevent unprecedented flooding.

In recent weeks, thanks to the same mechanism, more Ukrainians are even leaving the country than entering.

"Unfortunately, the High Court ruled with exceptional activism that the outline would be stopped if it is not discussed in the Knesset.

It is clear that it will not be possible to come to terms with the unlimited entry of foreign nationals, it is not clear if and when they intend to leave.

Therefore, today I appealed to the Interior Committee to hold a discussion regarding the entry order into Israel. "
