The Shin Bet, in cooperation with the Israel Police and IDF, uncovered a mechanism to use humanitarian assistance from the European Union to finance the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP} terrorist organization.
The investigation revealed that the funding was transferred to institutions and organizations in Judea and Samaria, which actually belong to the PFLP. They also operate under a ‘humanitarian’ cover, with an organization called the ‘Health Committees’ at their center.
A Shin Bet source stated: “The extensive financial activity promoted by the Popular Front organization joins a long line of terrorist activities, which have been thwarted by the Shin Bet in recent years. The Popular Front organization is a murderous terrorist organization which is responsible for the 2019 bombing in which Rina Shnerb was killed while walking with her family. The Shin Bet will continue to act and thwart the terrorist infrastructure and financial infrastructure of the PLFP organization, an organization that is constantly working to undermine security stability in Judea and Samaria and to promote organizational and military terrorist activity against Israel.”
AFSI applauds the spirit of cooperation among Israel’s security agencies. It uncovered a security loophole and will now benefit Israel’s security and help to keep it that much safer.
