On June 14, the Interior Ministry issued a regulation according to which an Israeli citizen can only apply to arrange residency status for a foreign-born partner if the latter entered the country legally. This regulation affects couples of Israelis and African refugees, threatening the refugees with imprisonment or deportation. On September 13, the regulation was rescinded following several petitions submitted to the courts and the Ministry of Inteior, but the affected couples were not informed of the change.
