(Algemeiner) An administrative court in Egypt has ruled that the country’s Interior Ministry must strip the citizenship of Egyptian nationals who have married Israelis, Ahram Online reported on Thursday.
The ruling, the report said, cited the need to protect Egypt’s national security.
The court case stemmed from a lawsuit filed by Shaimaa Amin, who demanded that her brother, who has resided in the United Kingdom for the past 12 years, be stripped of his citizenship because he married an Israeli woman and had children with her.

Amin, according to the report, claimed that her brother held views “that do not suit Egyptian society.”
