Israel pushes Dutch to freeze funds for group exposing 'IDF crimes in Gaza'
By Barak Ravid

Acting on instructions from the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, the Israeli ambassador to the Netherlands, Harry Knei-Tal, met last week with the director-general of the Dutch Foreign Ministry and complained about the Dutch embassy's funding of Breaking the Silence.
