The US has confirmed it stopped all aid to Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, in a step linked to new anti-terrorism legislation. More than 60 million US dollars in annual funds for the Palestinian security services has now ended, and – while Israel has backed some previous cuts in US aid for Palestinians – officials have expressed concern about this move. It is thought that co-operation with Israeli forces, which helps keep relative calm in the West Bank, could be affected.
