Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands area also part of the donor consortium.
The ministry also halted funding to the Women’s Affairs Technical Committee, a Palestinian NGO, after learning it named a youth center after Palestinian Dalal Mughrabi.
Mughrabi was one of 11 terrorists who hijacked a taxi and two buses near Tel Aviv in 1978, killing 38 people, in what is known as the Coastal Plain Massacre. ■
