Basic Law: Israel lands

   Passed on 25 July 1960 by the fourth Knesset, the basis of the law is the special relationship between the people of Israel and the land of Israel and its redemption. The law ensures that the state lands, which constitute about 90 percent of the lands in the state, should remain national property. The law prohibits the transfer of ownership over lands owned by the state, the Development Authority, or the Jewish National Fund, either by sale or by any other means, with the exception of types of land or transactions that have been specified in the law.
