Israel Designates Six Palestinian NGOs as PFLP Terror Affiliates
NBCTF - National Bureau for Counter Terror Financing of Israel
In a joint activity of the General Security Service (GSS) and Israel's National Bureau for Counter Terror Financing (NBCTF), which began in early 2021 and was approved by the legal authorities, six organizations belonging to the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" were designated as terror organizations because they constitute a network of organizations active undercover on the international front on behalf of the "Popular Front", to support its activity and further its goals.
Union of Palestinian Women's Committees (UPWC), ADDAMEER - Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, Bisan Center for Research and Development, Al-Haq Organization, Defense for Children International – Palestine (DCI-P), and the Union Of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC).
Those organizations were active under the cover of "Civic Society Organizations", but in practice belong to and constitute an arm of the Organization's leadership, the main activity of which is the "liberation of Palestine" and the destruction of Israel. The declared organizations are controlled by the senior leaders of the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" and employ many "Popular Front" activists in field and management positions, including activists who participated in terror activity.
Those organizations present themselves as acting for humanitarian purposes; however, they serve as a cover for the promotion and financing of "Popular Front" activity. Moreover, in accordance with the instructions of the Organization's headquarters, their ascription to the Organization is concealed for security reasons related to the apprehension that enforcement steps against them will be initiated by security organizations in Israel and the world.
From financing aspects, those organizations, controlled by the "Popular Front", serve as a central source for the financing of the Organization's activity in general and take a significant part in building the Organization's force and the growth of the terror organization. In addition, the declared organizations received large sums of money from European countries and international organizations, using various means of forgery and deceit. Those funds served the "Popular Front" for enlistment of activists and promotion of terror activity, wages for activists, promotion of "Popular Front" activity in Jerusalem, distribution of the Organization's messages and ideology, and payments to security prisoners' families and the "Shaheeds".
It is clarified that each of the six organizations operates as an arm of the "Popular Front" terror organization and constitutes an integral part thereof; and that this is the cause of their designation and not their declared civic activities.
