RAMALLAH - A senior Palestinian official said on Wednesday that Israel was trying to undermine the Palestinian Authority (PA) through a decision on Tuesday to freeze temporarily transfers of PA funds after it won membership of the UN cultural agency UNESCO.

In what the Palestinians saw as a reprisal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet decided to accelerate the building of Jewish settlements on land where the PA aims to establish an independent state next to Israel.

"It is very serious. Israel wants to strive to destroy the role of the Palestinian National Authority," Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), told Voice of Palestine radio.
