CAIRO (Ma'an) -- The Egyptian Ministry of Interior has started reviewing citizenship granted to Palestinians during the rule of ousted President Mohammad Morsi, an official said Wednesday.

The high-ranking official told Ma’an that the ministry formed a committee to examine 50,000 approved citizenship applications for Palestinians to either confirm their approval or cancel them.

The official added that acting president Adly Mansour formed another committee to examine all presidential pardons granted by Morsi to political and "terror"-related prisoners.

Most Arab countries do not grant citizenship to Palestinian refugees whose families were displaced from areas that became Israel in a 1948 war.

Egypt's army overthrew the elected Morsi in July after protests against his rule.

U can't preserve palestinian identity by no granting citizenship to refugees. If you want to preserve the palestinian identity , then don't take part in the inhuman blockade and support your brothers with arms so they don't need to be a citizen of your country. Americans and ally's support the occupation on many fronts, it won't make you a terrorist. Unless other agendas at hand. Egyptians are US citizens. Why double standard
