Jordan to Revoke Citizenship of PLO, PA Officials

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Jordan's King Abdullah II plans to revoke Jordanian citizenship for officials in the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority.

The decision comes on the heels of a new law in the Hashemite Kingdom that limits Palestinian representation in parliament. Palestinian Arabs make up about half of the country's 6 million residents.

Over the past few years, Abdullah has systematically revoked Jordanian citizenship of thousands of Palestinian Arabs there.

Meanwhile, Jordan refused entry to an estimated 1,100 "Palestinians" who fled the fighting in Syria over the past several weeks.

According to the report, 100,000 Syrians have sought refuge in Jordan since anti-government protests began in March 2011.
