Knesset committee annuls outdated regulations, including ban Turkish delight trade

Good news for camel meat lovers: The Knesset's Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee annulled various outdated regulations Monday, including a longtime ban on the sale of camel meat.


The decision was taken during a session called to look into the extension or annulment of emergency regulations. The ruling will be granted a final approval next week, along with other recommendations to be presented to the Knesset.


Up until the past year, Israel's emergency regulations included 158 various decrees and 11 laws. Documents recently submitted to the Defense and Foreign Affairs committee puzzled its members and prompted them to question the necessity of many regulations.


Acting on a government request, committee members decided to annul or regularize 90 emergency decrees.


In addition to the decision on camel meat sale, the ban on packaging and engaging in the trade of Turkish delight has also been lifted, as well a decree monitoring "the presentation of gold verification indications."


Meanwhile, new regulations to go into effect include decrees that will monitor Laundromats and hair salons
