The military’s liaison to the Palestinians said Tuesday Israel will implement a series of measures intended to ease Palestinians’ daily life, a day before US President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel and the West Bank.

The announcement came following a meeting between Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah last week.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said Israel would legalize the status of 5,500 undocumented Palestinians and foreigners living in the West Bank and Gaza. Tens of thousands of Palestinians and foreign nationals are believed to live in the West Bank and Gaza without proper documentation.

Many arrived from abroad to marry a Palestinian and live in Palestinian cities. But Israel does not recognize a legal right for Palestinians to live with foreign spouses in territory it controls — a procedure known as “family unification.”

Israel says it grants visas in “exceptional humanitarian circumstances.” But in practice, the matter had been frozen for over a decade, leading to sporadic protests in Ramallah by families affected.

Over the past year, Israel has legalized the status of 12,000 undocumented Palestinians and foreigners, according to COGAT.
