Israel has lodged a formal protest with Bern over Swiss funding for an exhibit by an Israeli NGO critical of the army’s conduct in the Palestinian territories.
Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely is trying to stop the funding for the exhibit from Breaking the Silence.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told AFP, “We cannot accept the actions of an organization whose aim is to smear soldiers in the Israeli army in the international arena and to cause serious harm to Israel’s image.”
