Report: CIA probe found no evidence for Israeli claim Palestinian groups back terror
The Central Intelligence Agency, after receiving information from Israel, has not been able to substantiate Israeli assertions that several Palestinian civil society groups are supporting terrorism, The Guardian reports.
Citing sources with knowledge of the CIA probe, the newspaper says a report did not find any evidence to back Israel’s claim. It notes that Washington has not publicly criticized the Israeli designation made last year.
In July the European Union said it would renew funding to Al Haq, one of the groups, after finding no evidence of irregularities.
Israel has accused the groups of serving as fronts for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
