HCJ 3117/02 Center for the Defence of the Individual v. The Minister of Defence Judgment
Judgment | 3117/02 | 14.4.2002

Judgment in HaMoked's petition to activate the special rescue unit of the Home Front Command to search, trace and rescue persons buried under the rubble in the Jenin refugee camp. The court rejected the petition, because the state had notified that the rescue unit had entered the refugee camp that day and was working to trace trapped persons. Nonetheless, the justices emphasized that "law and morality together justify the introduction of the rescue unit". (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
