Netherlands will not be helping Palestinian NGO due to its ties with terrorist groups


Palestine PalestinePalestine is such a tricky region at the moment that any notorious movement is immediately visible to the world. However, one cannot deny the fact that despite whatever goes around the territory, civilians have nothing to do with it.

But despite that, countries are taking tough steps towards Palestine if they are finding anything suspicious regarding their terrorism links. The Netherlands is the one to take a tough call here as it announced that it will no more be proving a Palestinian NGO with aid after it found that NGO had terrorism links.

The Dutch officials stated that they found that the NGO has connections with an EU-designated terrorist group. On Wednesday, the two Dutch officials–Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Minister Tom de Bruijn and Foreign Minister Ben Knapen– confirmed that they had decided to cut down the funding.
