Days of Palestine – Jerusalem

After a long legal process since 2016, the Society of St. Yves – Catholic Center for Human Rights represented by Adv- Nasarat Dakkour was able to succeed in an appeal on a law that discriminates against the Palestinians with family unification fees to get health insurance.

The supreme court has agreed on St. Yves’ appeal and issued new regulations for the Israeli Health Government to amend its regulations in order to equate the first payment imposed on Palestinians with Jerusalem ID versus Palestinians holders of Israeli Passport for spouses with family Unification fees of health insurance.

Meanwhile, it is worth mentioning that the Israeli government has been stalling on ruling in this matter using many arguments mainly the political situation and the multiple elections when finally was obliged to implement the resolution and amend its regulations.

The amendment will come into effect after 90 days on 20/12/2021.

Israel annexed East Jerusalem after the 1967 war and supposedly granted its Palestinian residents equal civil rights to Israeli citizens.
