Palestinian woman Sahar Kabaha, 33, sits beside her 10-year-old daughter Nashwa, in the Arab-Israeli town of Bartaa, June 12, 2013.
After her Israeli-Arab husband died last year, Israel's interior ministry refused to renew her permit to live in the Jewish state, effectively denying her the right to remain in the country, even though her four children are Israeli citizens.
She now lives without legal papers and is appealing the decision. For the past decade, Israel has largely restricted Palestinians from joining their spouses inside the Jewish state, citing security concerns like Palestinian militants using entry permits gained through marriage to carry out attacks in Israel.
