Al-Jazeera Video: Aid cuts could impact Palestinian security
Watch the Palestinian collaborators with Israel whose main function is to ensure the security of Israel and its colonies in the West Bank.
Obama is concerned that these collaborators will not do their job of ensuring Israeli security if their funding is cut.
"The administration of US President Barack Obama is concerned that politicians may freeze about $140m in funding for the Palestinian Authority's Security Services.
The US congress has already blocked $200m in development aid, following the Palestinian campaign for UN recognition.
Co-operation between the Palestinian Authority Security Forces and the Israeli military is at an all-time high, but analysts say a funding freeze could impact the security in both Israel and Palestine.
