Israel has banned six Palestinian humanitarian organizations

Israel has banned six Palestinian humanitarian organizations

Israeli and international human rights organizations denounced the decision, describing it as an attack on civil society, and expressed their solidarity with the banned NGOs.

The United Nations also criticized the Israeli government’s move. In turn, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that the United States, which had not been informed of such intentions before, would try to obtain explanations “from Israeli partners.”

The banned groups are: Al-Haq, a human rights organization founded in 1979. Conscience International Defense for Children – Palestine; Bissan Research and Development Center; The Union of Palestinian Women Committees and the Union of Agricultural Work Committees.

The Israeli Defense Ministry said these organizations are implicitly linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which the West considers a terrorist organization.

The ministry also said that the groups that received “large amounts of money from European countries and international organizations” were the “main source of funding for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.”

The European Union delegation in the Palestinian territories admitted that it was funding some activities of some banned organizations. Its spokesperson said previous allegations of misuse of European funds had not been confirmed, but that the delegation would “take this (new) case seriously and check whether the current accusations have any basis.”

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International issued a joint statement calling the Israeli government’s decision an “attack on the international human rights movement.”

The Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem described the Defense Ministry’s statements as “an exemplary act of totalitarian regimes, which clearly aim to shut down this type of organization.”

“B’Tselem stands in solidarity with our Palestinian colleagues and is proud of our work together for many years, and is determined to continue working,” the group’s statement read.
