Gisha executive director: The Interior Ministry didn’t even try to identify the women who were told to undergo tissue-type testing
From the interview:
Every month, the army is able to identify thousands of Palestinians who aren’t Israeli citizens by referring to their Palestinian ID cards, which is no surprise – the Palestinian ID card is an army-certified document […] The Interior Ministry didn’t even try to identify [these women]. We are talking about women who submitted applications to enter Israel which the Interior Ministry didn’t bother answering for many months, in one case even more than a year. When we had to take legal action, the Interior Ministry’s answer was – we demand genetic testing.
