Israel to allow Palestinian minors outside of Palestine to obtain Palestinians IDs and passports

March 10, 2017 9:34 P.M. (Updated: March 10, 2017 9:34 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinian minors living outside of the occupied Palestinian territory will now be permitted by Israel to enter the territory to obtain Palestinian identity cards and passports, Palestinian sources said on Thursday.

Head of the Palestinian Civil Affairs Committee Hussein al-Sheikh stated that Israel had agreed to allow Palestinian minors, aged between 14 and 16, who are living outside of Palestine to enter the territory with their birth certificate.

The minors will then be able to file applications with the civil affairs committee to obtain Palestinian IDs and passports, along with becoming registered in the Palestinian population.
