Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz on Wednesday denounced the draft Palestinian statehood that was submitted to the the United Nations Security Council, although it failed to pass a vote in the body on Tuesday.

"The Palestinian failure to secure a vote in the UN Security Council does not mitigate the Palestinian Authorities hostile and unilateral political offensive against Israel," he charged a day after the vote.

Steinitz said it was "a worrying sign" that France and Britain - two of Israel's allies - supported the resolution or abstained from the vote on it.
