Palestinians condemn Israeli order

New policy could evict or jail Palestinians living in occupied West Bank without Israeli ID.

    A new Israeli military policy could result in the eviction of tens of thousands of Palestinians from the occupied West Bank. They even risk being jailed.

    Amendments to the existing 1969 order on preventing infiltration could apply to Palestinians living in the West Bank without official ID cards issued by Israel.

    The Israeli army says the order was designed to "facilitate a process of judicial review of the extradition of illegal residents in the region".

    But Palestinian and Israeli human rights organisations have condemned the order.
