The Palestinian Authority warned Tuesday that recent Israeli plans to build new housing projects in Jerusalem would undermine the two-state solution and foil international efforts to reach a just and comprehensive peace in the region.

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for the PA presidency, said that the Israeli government's plans would eventually lead to a one state solution.

He said that the "State of Palestine would take all available measures to respond to the Israeli plans, which are a red line that the Palestinians won't allow to be implemented."

Abu Rudaineh also condemned Israel's decision to withhold tax and customs revenues belonging to the PA as a "criminal and aggressive act." He said that Israel would have to bear the consequences of its actions.
