    On Thursday, Palestinian and Israeli leaders will be taking the centre stage at the UN General Assembly.

    Washington's role as a mediator in the peace process is in doubt after several recent decisions by the Trump administration.

    Withdrawal of funding to a key UN agency for Palestinian refugees is one of them.
