Israel is waging a new war on the Palestinian people and their money and capabilities, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said on Monday. Shtayyeh, who was speaking at the beginning of the weekly Palestinian cabinet meeting in Ramallah, said the sanctions imposed by Israel against the PA because of its diplomatic and legal efforts in the international arena are in violation of the signed agreements between the two sides.

He was referring to a series of sanctions announced by the Israeli Security Cabinet last week that include withholding tax revenues collected by Israel on behalf of the Palestinians, revoking VIP cards of some senior Palestinian officials and freezing Palestinian construction in Area C of the West Bank.
