Israel strips Palestinian's widow of residency

E-mail Print PDF
Israel has revoked the residency rights of the widow of one of the Palestinians involved in an attack on a synagogue in West al-Quds (Jerusalem) amid escalating tensions in the occupied Palestinian territories.
plfwidow"I have ordered the cancellation of Nadia Abu Jamal's permit.… Anyone who is involved in terror must take into account that there are likely to be implications for their family members too," Interior Minister Gilad Erdan said in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement did not specify the name of Nadia’s spouse.
Israeli rights group B'Tselem rapped the measure taken by Israelis.
"We object to this measure. It's abuse of a minister's authority and a form of collective punishment," spokeswoman, Sarit Michaelim said, adding, "She isn't accused of any harm, and the revoking of her residency status will actually mean she will be banished from her home and thrown out of the city she lives in."
"Residency and social benefits...aren't gifts or favors the authorities bestow and can then take away. They're essential aspects of people's existence," Michaeli noted.
On November 18, Palestinian cousins Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, reportedly armed with axes and handguns, entered the synagogue in the western al-Quds neighborhood of Har Nof, killing at least four Israelis and injuring several others including two police officers.
The assailants were fatally shot by Israeli forces.
Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movements Hamas and Islamic Jihad hailed the attack, saying it was a response to the recent hanging of Hassan Yousef Rammouni, a young Palestinian bus driver, by Israeli settlers.
Rammouni, 32, was driving back home from work on November 16 when he was abducted and then hanged by Israelis in his bus in the Ras al-Amud neighborhood of East al-Quds.
