Israel relayed its concerns to the US administration on Thursday, warning the US of the implications of its new law. The new law states that if Palestinians want security aid, they need to compensate American terror victims who sued the PA in US courts, according to a report by Israeli media.

According to the report, Israel is concerned the law could lead to cuts for the Palestinian security force and in turn could disrupt security coordination with the IDF in the West Bank.

The law is expected to come into effect in a week.
