The vote in the Knesset on Deri Law 2 (Walla system)
The Knesset plenum approved tonight (Tuesday) in second and third reading the bill to repeal sections of the secession law.
The proposal, initiated by members of Knesset Yuli Edelstein and Limor Son Har Melech, and also promoted by Minister Orit Strock, cancels the clauses restricting entry and stay in the area evacuated in 2005, among others in Gush Katif and Chomash.
According to this, the areas will return to being like area C, and the ban on entering and staying in them will be lifted.
However, the proposal will not apply to the territory of the Gaza Strip.
The final wording that was approved was reduced compared to the original wording, and it does not allow the cancellation of clauses relating to real estate or movable property - and therefore does not allow a return to living in the territory.
However, the section in the secession law that canceled rights to real estate in the vacated territory - will not apply to rights that will be established in the territory from the moment the bill is approved.

The repeal of the Law of Disengagement is intended, among other things, to regulate the status of Yeshiva Yeshiva students, who are in the outpost in violation of the law - after they were evacuated as part of the program in 2005. In the past, Israeli governments evicted the yeshiva students, but now, in accordance with the coalition agreements of the Likud and Religious Zionism, the government has regulated the status of the Yeshiva in the outpost through the legislation.
"We fought on behalf of all the people of Israel to correct this crime," said at the end of the vote the head of the Shomron Regional Council and exiled Masha-Nur Yossi Dagan, who was one of the leaders of the fight to repeal the law.
"We are making a significant step forward tonight after 17 years of struggle. We are beginning the return until the settlements are rebuilt and the injustice corrected. The Israeli flag will return and fly over the built settlements," he added.

"This is a great day for the State of Israel," the Minister of Settlements and National Missions Orit Strock also claimed at the end of the vote.
"Today we get to realize the idea of five years first - the idea of returning to the beloved land that was abandoned and to the settlements that were uprooted and destroyed."
Knesset member Yuli Edelstein also responded to the results of the vote, claiming that "17 years of attempts, an uncompromising struggle and a strong belief in the justice of the way were drained into one moment when the Knesset plenum voted in favor of canceling the secession law. The State of Israel tonight began its recovery process from the deportation disaster."
Member of Knesset Limor Son Har Melech claimed that we must not "rest on our laurels", and added that "we must attack tomorrow the following two tasks that lie ahead of us: the re-establishment of the four settlements that were evacuated in northern Samaria, and a return home also to the Katif region that was abandoned in a terrible folly and became a nest of terror ".
