France: We’ll continue backing blacklisted Palestinian NGOs due to lack of evidence by Israel

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US correspondent based in New York

France will continue to support the six Palestinian NGOs that were blacklisted last year by Israel due to the “absence of evidence” by Israel demonstrating that the organizations actually support terror, a French representative tells the UN Security Council during the monthly session on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel claims that the six organizations serve as a front, funneling humanitarian aid they’ve received to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which the US and Israel have blacklisted as a terror group.
