Israel has granted residency to a 33-year-old gay Palestinian to live with his Israeli partner in Tel Aviv because the Palestinian had received anti-gay death threats while living in the West Bank.
The move was unprecedented, and even straight couples rarely receive such permission.
A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces’ coordinator of government activities in the territories said an exception was made because the man’s life was apparently in danger.
The man will be required to renew the IDF-issued residence permit monthly until the Interior Ministry rules on his five-year-old application for a more permanent status.
