Israel has frozen the transfer of taxes it collects on behalf of the Palestinians in retaliation for their seeking accession to several international treaties, an official said Thursday.

"It has been decided to freeze the transfer to the Palestinian Authority of the taxes collected by Israel on its behalf," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

At the same time, he said, Israel was suspending its participation with the Palestinians in developing a gas field off the Gaza Strip and putting a cap on Palestinian deposits in its banks.
