These organizations operated under the guise of "civil society organizations", but in practice belong to and form an arm of the organization's leadership, the purpose of which is to destroy Israel while taking terrorist acts.

In terms of funding, these organizations, which are controlled by the IDF, serve as a major source of funding for the organization's activities as a whole and play a significant role in building the power and empowerment of the terrorist organization. These funds were used by the Haza for payments to the families of security prisoners and "martyrs", salaries for activists, recruitment of activists, promotion of terrorist activity and intensification, promotion of the Popular Front activity in Jerusalem and dissemination of messages and ideology of the organization.
The NGO Monitor referred to the declarations of the Hazaa organizations as terrorist organizations and stated that “The list includes six organizations that we have been researching since 2016, and it reinforces our research claims that European money did flow to human rights organizations linked to the Popular Front for Palestine Liberation.

In response to the announcement, the Shenrav family published a reference to the outlawing of several organizations associated with the Popular Front, the murderous terrorist organization responsible for the assassination of the late Rina Shenrev and the injury of Rabbi Eitan and Dvir Shenrev: " Belonging to the Popular Front terrorist organization, as terrorist organizations. For many years, these organizations have misrepresented themselves as 'human rights organizations', and have received foreign funding from many countries. In practice, it turns out, these organizations served only as cover organizations for a murderous terrorist organization. For example, the Admir organization. For many years the terrorist Khalida Jarrar, head of the Popular Front, served as Adamir's vice president. The terrorist who was the living spirit in the attack in which our house Rene was killed, was employed there and many other terrorists who belonged to the Popular Front. Today, Adamir's president and two other Adamir's lawyers represent Rina's killers. We hope that following the decision to declare these organizations terrorist organizations,"You will be deprived of Adamir's lawyers who represent Rene's killers, to continue appearing before the military courts and in general."
