Custodian of Absentee Property

The Israeli state body that manages land and property determined under the Israeli Absentees’ Property Law—1950 to belong to those [generally Palestinians] declared “absentees”. While this office is supposed to hold such properties for guardianship, until a political solution for the Palestinian refugees is reached, in actuality, it frequently transfers these properties to Jews.
