The next political storm? Next week, the Knesset will hold a confidential debate on the Deportation of Terrorists' Families Law, which was approved in a preliminary reading before the October 7 massacre. The law, initiated by Knesset members from the coalition and the opposition, headed by Hanoch Miliwicki and Oded Forer, will be discussed confidentially by the Knesset committee headed by coalition chairman Ofir Katz, in light of the lessons learned from the riots during the Public Security Committee's discussion of the death penalty for terrorists law.

As noted, the law has already been approved in the preliminary reading and will now be examined before advancing it to its first reading, after the coalition and opposition administrations decided to approve further committee discussions on private laws already in the legislative process.
The law stipulates that it will be possible to revoke Israeli citizenship or a permit for permanent residence in Israel from family members of terrorists, if their intention to carry out an attack is known, or following identification or praise for the attack and the perpetrator. It should be noted that the attorney general already expressed opposition to the law last February due to international legal difficulties, stating that it was an "extreme sanction."
