Israel has demanded the return of two Israeli civilians who it says crossed into Gaza and are being held by Hamas, as well as the bodies of two soldiers who were killed in a 2014 war.

The US has admitted that it has not stopped financial aid to the Palestinian Authority security agencies as part of its general freeze of tens of millions of dollars which support civil programmes in the occupied territories, Safa News Agency reported on Friday.

The team of officials, led by presidential advisor/son-in-law Jared Kushner, travelled to the region last month but found their proposals unlikely to be implemented because the Palestinian Authority refuses to meet with them, still infuriated by the Trump administration's decisions to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy there.

The stipends amount to approximately $330 million, or about 7 percent of the Palestinian Authority's $5 billion budget in 2018.

Ramallah: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said in a meeting of his Fatah Party's Central committee that US President Donald Trump's Mideast peace deal, also known as the deal of the century, "will not pass".

"We will not allow anyone to interfere with the money that Israel is against us paying to the families of martyrs and prisoners", he said, according to a transcript from a state-run media outlet.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday said he would continue social payments to the families of Palestinians killed or imprisoned by Israel despite a new Israeli law to penalise the policy. Abbas said other Arab countries also have rejected the US plan, but didn't say which countries opposed the plan.

"We are still waiting and we will take the proper measures that fit with our interests", Abbas said. The Israeli government now has control over the Palestinian stipend allocation as part of an existing peace agreement between the two nations.
