PM Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet is expected to approve a one-year extension of the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law, which bans Palestinians married to Israeli citizens from residing in Israel.
The preamble of the resolution that the cabinet will be discussing cites an Israel Security Service (Shin Bet) assessment that the law should be extended because Palestinians applying for spousal unification constitute “a heightened potential security risk.”
Since it is a temporary order, the Citizenship Law must continually be extended in order to remain in force.
