Israel threatens Palestinians that UN move could damage US support

Sources in Israel have hinted that the US could reduce its support for the Palestinian Authority if the planned move to seek UN recognition of an independent state goes ahead. All sectors of PA activity will be hit, claimed political sources on a Radio Israel programme broadcast on 14 August.

The Israeli government is looking at different ways to deal with the PA's September approach to the UN, including economic and military responses. September 20 is the date on which PA President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to address the United Nations on the statehood bid.
