U.S.: Israel’s decision to withhold PA funds ‘premature’ – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

The United States slammed Monday Israel’s decision to withhold Palestinian Authority funds saying “any decision following the Hamas-Fatah agreement is premature.”

U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner admitted that the Israelis “have their concerns,” but stressed that that the U.S. government’s position is that “we believe that we need to wait and see. We believe it’s premature to make any decisions. What’s important now is that the Palestinians ensure implementation in a way that advances the prospects of peace.”
