The cabinet on Monday decided not to renew the transfer of tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority, which were frozen two weeks ago in response to the Palestinian acceptance into UNESCO.

The vote to continue the freeze narrowly passed, according to a government official. The funds, which are collected by Israel on imports on behalf of the PA, amount to about $100 million each month.
