Authorities have granted a residency permit to Jerusalem's Anglican bishop, Palestinian Suheil Dawani, after months of legal wrangling, the clergyman said in a message to his supporters on Tuesday.

Dawani was elected Bishop of the Diocese of Jerusalem in 2007, and as a non-Israeli is required by authorities to obtain a temporary residence permit. This was granted in 2008 and 2009, but he was turned down in 2010.

"It is with great pleasure, and with God's help, that I and my family have received our 'Residency Permits'," Dawani said in his e-mail message to followers.

A church official told Reuters the bishop and his family had received their permits on Monday and that they would have to be renewed when they expire, but declined to give further details.
