A senior Palestinian official said Sunday that the US should be ashamed over its veto of a UN resolution condemning settlement construction in the West Bank.

Senior PLO negotiator Nabil Shaat said Friday's vote "proved that Israel is isolated internationally and is only protected by the American veto."

The Security Council voted 14-0 in favor of the resolution, but the US used its veto power to reject the measure.

Shaath said that the Palestinians plan "large demonstrations" throughout the West Bank on Friday to express their anger at the US.
