The designation includes organisations that are receiving aid from both Ireland and other nations within the EU.

The Foreign Affairs Minister has expressed concern at the designation of Palestinian charities as terrorist organisations by Israel.

Simon Coveney says the EU has contacted officials in Israel to seek clarification, the Union was not informed in advance of the ruling and has not been given any evidence to support it.

The designation includes organisations that are receiving aid from both Ireland and other nations within the EU.

Minister Coveney added that it has the potential to impact civil society across the occupied territory, and seriously undermine humanitarian efforts.
