An increasing number of Israelis are giving up their passports as they are faced with various problems in other countries, a report says.
The number of Israelis renouncing their citizenship has increased by more than 65 percent last year, the website of the Israeli paper Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Sunday.
The paper cited year-end summaries which shows many Israelis, who live in Europe and the United States, are increasingly submitting documents to renounce the Israeli citizenship.
The report further said that the main reason behind the surge is the desire among the Israelis to hold other citizenship as they are faced with various problems in those countries.
Holding citizenship in some countries requires people to give up their Israeli passports. According to the survey, many have decided to stop being a citizen of the Zionist regime in order to adopt the other nationality.
Holders of the Israeli passport also face problems when they apply for employment in sensitive jobs. Travelling with Israeli passport is also problematic as holders are refused entry to certain states.
