Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman signed a special order Monday under section 3 (a) of the Anti-Terrorism Law, which designates the Iliya Institute operating in eastern Jerusalem as a terrorist organization.

According to information collected by the Shin Bet in recent months, the Ilia Institute, which operates under the auspices of a youth center, is actually acting on behalf of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).

According to suspicions, the institute carried out activities that were intended to promote the activities of the DFLP in Jerusalem.

Among other things, the Ilya Institute recruited and trained activists, distributed the ideology of the DFLP, produced propaganda and incitement videos, and supported terrorist activities.

"The defense establishment, led by the Shin Bet security service, acts decisively and uproots any attempt to establish terror elements in East Jerusalem. We take all measures. We will not accept an institution that acts as a front-line terror branch in the capital of Israel, united Jerusalem "Lieberman said.
