Saudi Mothers Need To Apply For Their Children's Citizenship On Time

A Bedouin boy rides a camel in a

camel race in the desert of Wadi

Rum in South Jordan. Jordanian and

Saudi Bedouins competed  in this

popular traditional Bedouin sport.There are many Saudis whose ancestors lived at the borders of Saudi Arabia and between the borders, coming and going freely without having to pass through checkpoints or needing passports. Obviously this still continues to the present day except now travelers must have papers proving their nationality. My understanding of this news article is that the Bedouins who have been determined not to be "originally" Saudi, will be stripped of their Saudi citizenship and rendered stateless (if they have no dual nationality that is). The highlighted part regarding Saudi mothers needs clarification, does this apply to Saudi mothers who are Bedouin and have had children by non-Saudis or to all Saudi mothers?
