Deletion of the petition in HCJ 4242/10 in the case of three women, residents of the West Bank, after their deportation was prevented and their address was changed from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank
Gisha consented to have the urgent petition it filed on June 1, 2010 deleted. The petition was filed on behalf of three women, residents of the West Bank, who were detained in Jerusalem and slated for deportation to Gaza based on their registered address. Gisha gave its consent almost two years after the petition was filed and after the women’s deportation to Gaza was prevented and their address was changed to the West Bank.
The parties to the petition agreed that the three women would file applications with the Palestinian DCO to have their status in the West Bank regulated. In the meantime, and after the applications had not been received by the Israeli side for reasons which remain unclear, the women were included in a list published by Israel containing the names of 1,900 Palestinians whose address changes to the West Bank had been approved as part of diplomatic gestures reached with the Quartet’s involvement. The list was published on August 2, 2011, however, one woman was issued a new ID card with the updated address only in November 2011 and the other two received the updated card in February 2012. In light of this, Gisha consented to have the petition deleted. It was deleted on April 5, 2012.
