The Tel Aviv District Court on Monday issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the operations of Uber in Israel, except for the company's regular taxi service, Israel's Channel 10 TV News reported. The court barred Uber from entering the transportation industry because of insurance matters.
Uber launched its pilot ride-sharing program in Israel past year, but has faced opposition from the Transportation Ministry, which filed suit against the company in May for violating regulations.
The hearing was held following a civil suit filed against Uber's Israeli operations by the Association of Taxi Owners and Gett (previously known as GetTaxi), a global on-demand mobility company that connects customers with transportation, goods and services. The Transportation Ministry has also been against Uber, making obtaining permits a challenge.
In response to the court ruling, Uber stated: "We're terminating the uberDAY/uberNIGHT pilot service, but the taxi service will continue as usual".

I've reached out to Uber and will update this story if I hear back.
Uber, which operates in more than 160 cities worldwide and allows private drivers to freelance as taxi operators, has faced blowback from Israeli regulators since it launched a trial run in Tel Aviv in 2016.
Uber was able to get around legal restrictions by defining its service as not-for-profit, claiming that it is merely "reimbursing" its drivers for the cost of maintaining their cars. One can expect the case will ultimately be decided by the High Court of Justice.
