On November 19, 2014, the National Insurance Institute revoked the health insurance of three infants, siblings, Israeli residents – six years old, four years old and two years old – this information was given by the Clalit Health Fund personnel to the family members who came with the children to the neighborhood's clinic for a doctor's appointment. Two of the children suffer from chronic medical problems and need constant medical treatment and supervision. One day before their health insurance was revoked, their father committed the fatal attack in the Har-Nof synagogue in Jerusalem.

On December 3, 2014, after previous letters were disregarded and treated with disrespect, HaMoked turned again to the National Insurance Institute and demanded to transfer to it the decision concerning the revocation of the children's residency. HaMoked noted in its letter, that the Institute, which was obligated to implement proper administrative processes, deprived the family of its right for a hearing, and emphasized that the National Insurance Institute had no lawful cause to revoke the residency of the children, who have been living in Jerusalem all their lives and who were registered in the population register as Israeli residents. HaMoked demanded that the Institute reinstated, forthwith, the children's residency and other rights of which they were deprived.

In response to HaMoked's letter, the National Insurance Institute raised some new and outrageous arguments as grounds for the revocation of the children's rights. Among other things, the Institute claimed that a minor could not be recognized as an Israeli resident if neither one of his parents was a resident, and that the children were not assigned to an adult who was obligated to pay their health contributions. In addition, the National Insurance Institute argued that as of the revocation of the residency visa of their mother in Israel, the center of life of her children could no longer be in Israel and therefore, their right to social benefits was revoked. These arguments run contrary to the law as well as to the conduct of the National Insurance Institute over the years, and it therefore seems like another attempt of the Israeli authorities to take revenge of the innocent family of the assailant.

In a letter dated December 18, 2014, which was received by HaMoked on December 23, 2014, the National Insurance Institute informed HaMaked that "for the time being it was resolved to reinstate the registration of the… children in the health insurance register." It should be emphasized that the right to health insurance is only one of the rights granted by the National Insurance Institute to any person who is registered as a resident. HaMoked will act to ensure that the National Insurance Institute reinstates all social security rights and benefits that the children are entitled to receive by virtue of their residency in Israel.
