The postponed decree forbidding Israelis and foreign nationals from driving Palestinians in the West Bank was issued by Commanding General at Israeli Army Central-Region Command, Ya'ir Naveh in Novemeber and was planned to come into action this Friday, Jan 19th.  

The planned order has been severely criticized by lawyers and human rights organizations, and petitions against it have been filed in the High Court of Justice.  

The Israeli Army released a statement today saying that the implementation of the order "will be postponed until further evaluation… by the official authorities."  

The decree, which reflects the legal definition of Apartheid, would disrupt even minimal social contacts between Israelis and Palestinians.  

The order was said by Israeli authorities to help stop the smuggling of Palestinians into Israel in cars that belong to Israelis (for the most part, Israeli Arabs).
