Cabinet withdrew Egyptian citizenship Thursday from three citizens holding Israeli citizenship on charges of obtaining foreign citizenship without authorization.

The ruling was published in the 28th edition of the Cabinet’s official gazette. 

Two of the three siblings, H. A and A.A, were born in 1997 and 1999 in Cairo, whereas the eldest sibling, A R.A., was born in 1995 on Israeli territory.

Egyptians may not travel to Israel unless they obtain security permission from the Egyptian government.

Furthermore, by marrying an Israeli, an Egyptian risks losing his citizenship. In 2016, Egypt’s administrative court ruled that marriage between Egyptians and Israelis threatens Egypt’s national security.

The court further stated that the right to freely choose a marriage partner, otherwise protected by the constitution, does not exempt citizens from undertaking their responsibility to protect the state and society.
