France is voicing its “concern” over Israel’s blacklisting of six Palestinian rights organizations for their alleged ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian terror group.

“France reiterates its devotion to the vital role that civil society plays in democratic life,” a spokesperson for France’s foreign ministry says. “We request clarifications from the Israeli authorities.”
