Israel hasn’t shown Ireland or the European Union credible evidence to prove that there is substance behind its decision last week to designate six Palestinian nongovernmental groups as terror entities, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

“We have asked for, as has the EU, the evidence basis for designating those NGOs,” he explained as he sat with the paper in the Inbal Hotel, just before heading to meet with President Isaac Herzog. But “we have not gotten any credible evidence to link the NGOs to terrorism, certainly not that I have seen,” said Coveney who has also served as his country’s defense minister since 2020. The issue is high on his agenda, during his two-day visit to Israel. It is his fifth such trip since he became foreign minister in 2017.
