European Union Ambassador Dimiter Tzantchev and diplomats from 18 countries demanded answers from the Foreign Ministry about last week’s IDF raid of the offices of seven Palestinian non-governmental organizations Israel has classified as terror groups. The meeting was “to raise our deep concerns over the raids on the Palestinian civil society organizations last week,” Tzantchev tweeted after Monday’s meeting with Israeli officials.

“These actions are not acceptable,” he said, adding that “the EU is a firm supporter of free and strong civil society.” The diplomats who represented 18 European nations said they did not accept Israel’s terror designation, explaining that they had not received any evidence to validate that claim.
