The radio said the vote was postponed for two weeks after the backer of the bill, parliamentary deputy Swulun Orlev of the National Religious Party, withdrew it because of a lack of support.
Orlev was seeking to delay the evacuation of 25 Israeli settlements from the Gaza Strip and West Bank, now scheduled to start around mid-August, by three months.
Further details of the vote postponement decision were not immediately available. dpa le ds ch
