The application for a Jerusalem identification card for seven-month-old Silwan resident Nouralden Abbassi was recently rejected by the Israeli Ministry of Interior.

The Ministry argued that because Nouralden’s father Issa is in jail — and he is the only parent who hold Jerusalem residency rights, as Nouralden’s mother has a West Bank only ID — the family should wait until Issa is released (10 years from now) to apply for an ID card. Without an ID card, Nouralden will be unable to go to public school in Jerusalem, receive health insurance and services, and travel freely.
