The Knesset's House Committee approved two parliamentary inquiries into leftist non-governmental organizations on Wednesday.


Two committees were created by the decision; one will look into foreign funding of Israeli organizations acquiring lands in Israel, the other investigating actions of non-governmental Israeli organizations role in the delegitimization of the IDF.

The move came one day after Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Inon told the House Committee that the establishment of the probes “is a precedent that raises basic questions that stand at the heart of democratic rule."
