  • Israel declared the Palestine Liberation Organization’s main financial body a terrorist organization on Thursday, infuriating the Palestinians as U.S. President Donald Trump’s envoy wrapped up his first visit to the region. The fund makes monthly payments to about 35,000 families of Palestinians killed and wounded in its long-running conflict with Israel, including suicide bombers and other militants who targeted civilians and soldiers. See CTV News’ coverage.
  • The Toronto Sun has coverage on how Israel is awarding its highest honour to the founder of a Jewish settler group that the Obama administration had condemned for stoking Israeli-Palestinian tensions.
  • IPolitics reports that three lobbyists at Hill and Knowlton have registered to lobby the Canadian government for an Israeli drone manufacturer, according to new filings from the federal lobbying registry.
