Interior Minister Arye Deri signed an order on Thursday canceling the residency permit of the father of a terrorist who carried out an attack in October.

Deri’s predecessor at the ministry, Silvan Shalom, had announced following the attack that he would not renew the permit of Riad Zwid, the father of Ala Zwid, who on October 11 drove his car into a female soldiers on the side of Route 65 at the entrance to Kibbutz Gan Shmuel, east of Hadera, exited the vehicle and stabbed three people.

Ala Zwid, who had been living in Umm al-Fahm, badly wounded a 19-year-old female soldier and lightly-to-moderately wounded a 14-year-old boy and two men aged 19 and 45.

Ala Zwid is originally from the Palestinian village of Masilat a-Hartaiyya near Jenin, and moved to Israel a few years ago with his father under the Family Unification Law, after his father married an Israeli woman.

As a result of Deri’s order, Riad Zwid will lose his residency status and the medical and social benefits he receives from the state.

According to the Population, Immigration, and Borders Authority, over the past 10 years, 13 people have had their residency canceled due to “loyalty violations,” typically relating to involvement in terrorism.

Deri said Thursday that the measure “will cause terrorists who intend to carry out attacks to understand that there will be consequences also for their families.”
