A 33 year-old gay Palestinian man from Jenin has recently been granted a temporary residency permit in Israel by the IDF, in order to allow him to reunite with his Israeli partner who lives in Tel Aviv.

The permit was issued by Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj.-Gen. Yosef Mishlav.

Several years ago, the Palestinian had filed a request with the Israeli Interior Ministry to receive residency status in Israel that would enable him to live with his lover for the past eight years, a computer engineer in his forties.
