A Jerusalem man has filed a petition to the Jerusalem District Court seeking the status of his passport, claiming he is a dual national.
Nabil Haddad, an Israeli citizen, had obtained a permit to travel to the Holy Land for medical treatment.
However, he says his passport has been revoked and he cannot get it back.
The Jerusalem Districts Court on Tuesday approved Haddaddad’s petition for a new passport, which will allow him to travel in Israel.
Haddalad claims his passport was revoked because he does not meet the residency requirements.
“I am a dual Israeli-Palestinian citizen, and my passport was cancelled because it was a result of my Israeli passport being cancelled,” Haddawad said in a statement.
“The decision of the court is not based on the fact that I am a foreigner, but on my Israeli nationality, which was cancelled by the government in order to deny me the opportunity to be a citizen.”
He added that he is also worried about his wife and children, who have dual Israeli citizenship.
The ruling came in response to Haddendad’s application for a second passport.
The Israeli government said that it will review the decision, which it called “a serious error,” and that the passport will be reissued for the holder.
Haddendadal, a 24-year-old resident of Jerusalem’s Ashkelon district, says he has never felt at home in Israel and feels that his passport is being used against him.
“This is not a Palestinian issue, this is a Zionist issue,” Haldaddad said.
“We’re Israeli citizens.
Why should I be discriminated against?”
He added: “It’s not right that this is happening to me, and it’s not fair to my family and to my country.
This is not something that should be happening.”
Haddad is the second Israeli citizen to file a petition seeking the renewal of his citizenship, after the United States revoked its citizenship of Israeli businessman Haim Koren, who was granted Israeli citizenship in 2014.
In December, the European Union also revoked Haddadal’s citizenship.
“It’s time to get rid of the discrimination and the double standards,” said Avi Dichter, head of the Jewish Agency for Israel.
“Israel has a very positive reputation as a liberal democracy and has many immigrants from other countries who are happy to live here, especially the Arabs.”
