Report: Netanyahu orders govt officials to stop cooperation with PA

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu early Wednesday ordered government officials to stop cooperation with the Palestinian Authority, according to an Israeli newspaper.

Haaretz said on its website that Israeli ministers were told not to communicate with Palestinian officials, including minsters and director generals.

Haaretz quoted a senior Israeli official as saying that only "low-level field cooperation" would be permitted.

The move comes as an imposition of sanctions against the PA in response to the PLO's decision to apply to join 15 international conventions, the report said.

Netanyahu's actions seem to be at odds with comments made by US and Palestinian officials about Tuesday's peace talks session. more
