The Israeli Ministry of Interior issued a road map, enabling Palestinians in East Jerusalem to obtain Israeli citizenship in a simplified way.

According to the Ministry of the Interior, this program was designed primarily for young people, and according to this map, it is possible to obtain Israeli passports for more than 20 thousand people, as approximately 7 thousand Israeli passports will be issued annually in the Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
