Yishai Working to Revoke Citizenship of TA Bus Bomber


Interior Minister Eli Yishai recently asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein for permission to start the exceptional procedure of revoking the citizenship of the Taibe resident arrested on suspicion of carrying out a bombing on a Tel Aviv bus during the Pillar of Fire counter-terror operation in Gaza.

In a letter to the attorney general, Yishai noted that the attack was an act of terror and grounds for revocation of the accused terrorist's Israeli citizenship under the Citizenship Law. The terrorist - a former resident of the Palestinian Authority - became an Israeli citizen under the law through marriage.
