    In a precedent-setting ruling, Israel's High Court has ordered the Ministry of Interior to restore residency rights to a Palestinian man born in East Jerusalem.

    The ruling changes de facto ministry policy of revoking residency from Palestinians born in the city if they have been out of the city for more than seven years. The judgement could help protect Palestinian residency rights in occupied East Jerusalem.
