 EU stands up for Palestinian groups designated by Israel as terrorists< /p>

The European Union will continue to support Palestinian human rights groups designated by Israel as terrorist organizations. This was stated by the press secretary of the head of European diplomacy Josep Borrell Nabila Massrali. “Past allegations of misuse of EU funds against some Palestinian civil society organizations have not been confirmed. The EU will continue to respect international law and support organizations”, — she said. PA Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, in turn, vowed solidarity with non-governmental Palestinian organizations. "This is not only an NGO, but also a government agency, therefore. As long as they work within the law, we will stand in solidarity with them”, — Steye noted. Recall that the day before, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz listed three Palestinian groups as terrorist organizations: the Federation of Women's Committees, Bisan; and "Admir". They are offshoots of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. As it turned out, the organizations operate under the cover and mediation of the PFLP in Judea and Samaria, as well as abroad, under the guise of carrying out humanitarian activities. In reality, they contribute to the goals of the PFLP, its strengthening and recruitment. In addition, they assist in raising funds for the terrorist organization through a variety of methods, including document forgery and fraud. “Identification of these organizations and exposing them as affiliates of the PFLP terrorist organization is part of a joint effort between the Shin Bet, the National Bureau for Combating Terrorist Financing (NBCTF) of the Ministry of Defense and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” the statement said.
