Israeli bill to revoke citizenship for 'pay-for-slay' terrorists passes 1st reading

The bill to revoke Israeli citizenship from terrorists that receive salaries from the Palestinian Authority for their attacks passed its first reading on Wednesday.

The law would remove exemptions under the Citizenship Law that allows the denaturalization of terrorists and spies.

There was broad bipartisan support for the bill except for Ra'am and the Joint List, passing with 56 votes in favor.
