Israel can now revoke permanent residency of East Jerusalem Palestinians


By Middle East Affairs

As of Wednesday, a new law says Palestinians in East Jerusalem can get their permanent residency revoked if they engage in terror or anti-Israel activities, Haaretz reports.

The state can also deport whoever’s residency is revoked.

According to the news agency, there are three situations that allow for the measure: “If the status was granted under false pretenses, if the resident endangered public safety or security, or if he betrays the State of Israel.”

If the person cannot be permanently resettled in another country, Haaretz says the interior minister must grant him or her an alternative status. The interior minister’s decision can also be appealed by filing a petition to an administrative affairs court.
