It’s Apartheid! Egyptian nationality stripped from 800, including Palestinians

A commission formed by the Cabinet to review pardons and citizenships granted by former president Mohamed Morsy to foreigners has revoked the citizenship of 800 people, including Palestinians, who obtained it illegally, according to security sources.

Those include Hamas senior leader Mahmoud al-Zahar, the sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm, adding that other persons subjected to the measure are being vetted by security so as to decide whether they have any links to terrorist groups that had committed any assaults against Egypt.
