Members of the board of directors of Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund demanded Tuesday an immediate halt to all plans by the organization to purchase land in the West Bank on the grounds that such acquisitions violate its constitution.

The board members cited a new legal opinion, written by former Deputy Attorney General Yehoshua Shoffman, stipulating that the JNF is in sovereign Israeli territory. The West Bank is not under Israeli sovereignty.
