Israel yet to prove banned Palestinian groups have terror ties, says top EU diplomat
Josep Borrell: ‘We are asking for answers from the Israeli government, and we have not yet received convincing answers’

European Union High Representative Josep Borrell declared on Wednesday that Israel had yet to send definitive proof that six recently banned Palestinian organizations were linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group. “We are asking for answers from the Israeli government, and we have not yet received convincing answers,” Borrell said in a closed-door meeting of international donors to the Palestinians in Oslo.

Borrell’s speech, like others given at the conference, was not public. The Times of Israel received a transcript of the address from another official. Israel declared the six civil groups to be PFLP-linked terror groups in late October. The announcement sparked a firestorm of coverage and condemnations, as most of them received European and international funding. Israeli officials have doubled down on the designation, repeating that there is “ironclad” classified evidence that proves the organizations’ terror links.
