On Monday, a bill regarding terrorists and their families will be submitted to the Knesset. MK Robert Ilatov of Yisrael Beiteinu and the Im Tirtzu movement are promoting the bill that proposes to revoke the Israeli citizenship of terrorists and nullify the permanent residency status of terrorists and their families.

The bill seeks to immediately revoke the residency status of terrorists and their family members if Israelis were murdered or injured in their attacks. The bill, which was initially submitted by MK David Rotem, applies to all terrorists who were directly or indirectly involved in a terror attack.

“Recently, the incidents in which Israeli citizens, mostly East Jerusalem residents, were involved in terror attacks or hostile acts against citizens have increased,” explained those responsible for the bill. “In most of these cases, the terrorists had blue ID cards, which allowed them to remain [in Israel] and move [freely] throughout the country.”

Those behind the bill explained that it will be submitted again today in light of the terror attack in which Hadas Malka was murdered. “The corrections that were made will allow the interior minister to revoke the Israeli residency permit of terrorists and their family members automatically,” they added.
