Israel recently provided the Biden administration with intelligence aimed at justifying controversial IDF raids on seven Palestinian human rights organizations in the West Bank last month, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said Tuesday.
Price did not detail the intelligence that purportedly led to Israel to shutter the civil society groups on August 18, and did not say what the US reaction to the information had been, after Washington had sought explanations for the action against the organizations previously labeled by Jerusalem as terror supporters.
“Our Israeli partners have in recent days provided us with additional information,” Price said Tuesday when asked for an update on the matter during a press briefing. “They provided this information not only to the [State] Department but to a range of our interagency partners. We are continuing to review this, and that process is ongoing.”
He said the Israeli intelligence had been handed over last week.
