We remain deeply concerned about the impact of travel restrictions on family life, further education and emigration.
Palestinians from East Jerusalem risk losing their permanent right to live in East Jerusalem if they cannot prove residency for the previous seven years. Records show that more than 13,000 Palestinians have lost their Jerusalem residency status since the annexation by Israel in 1967, including students who have been studying abroad.
Palestinians in the diaspora are not allowed to enter the Occupied Palestinians Territories without approval from the Israeli authorities. Since 2000 there has been a freeze on family reunification permits, despite more than 120,000 requests being submitted to the Palestinian Authority as of October 2005.
We continue to monitor this situation closely and raise our concerns as necessary.
