An Israeli human rights group has filed a petition at the High Court demanding an immediate halt to Israeli mining operations in the West Bank. The group, Yesh Din, accuses Israel of breaking international law by exploiting the occupied territory's resources for its own gain. It says Israel has never conducted a thorough review of the practice. But Israel says the procedures are in line with both international law and agreements with the Palestinians.
