Interior Minister Aryeh Deri ordered on Thursday to revoke the citizenship status of 40-year-old Hani Abu Amra from Tel Sheva, who belonged to a terror cell which plotted to blow up a wedding hall in southern Israel.

“The situation in which residents are exploiting their status to try and commit terror attacks and kill Israelis is something I am going to fight relentlessly,” Deri stated. “I will take any legal measure I can against these assailants.”

Abu Amra was given a temporary resident status in 2000 after marrying an Israeli citizen.
