EU interference in Israeli domestic politics and funding of Palestinian entities engaged in incitement and payments to the families of terrorists must be stopped,” the Israeli minister said. His words are quoted in site Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The head of the department also criticized Mr. Borrell for constantly making comparisons “between Palestinian terror and Israeli efforts to combat terrorism.”
