Israeli occupation authorities have ordered the expulsion of the wife of a Palestinian citizen of occupied Jerusalem, under the pretext of not holding the status of a permanent citizen of the city, according to activist Amjad Abu Asab, an official who monitors the affairs of the Jerusalem's political prisoners in Israeli detention.
He said Mariam Ajlouni, the wife of Mohammad Jabr Ajlouni, a Palestinian citizen of the occupied city, was told by Israeli occupation police that she had two weeks to appeal against the order or that she will have to leave the city.
Ajlouni, a mother of four children, is one of many Palestinian citizens of occupied Jerusalem facing the risk of expulsion by the occupation authorities, whose discriminatory rules ban the reunion of wives married to Palestinian citizens from the occupied city.
Although Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem live in an area classified as an internationally recognized Palestinian Territory occupied by Israel since 1967, they are denied their citizenship rights and are instead classified only as "residents" whose permits can be revoked if they move away from the city for more than a few years.
