Can the US still broker peace in Middle East?

The US government announced it’s closing the diplomatic mission of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in Washington, DC.

National Security Adviser John Bolton delivered the news during a speech on Monday.

He also threatened to arrest and prosecute judges from the International Criminal Court, should they proceed to prosecute American citizens for alleged war crimes in Afghanistan, or Israeli nationals for crimes in occupied Palestine.

Palestinians have long sought justice at the ICC for the decades-old Israeli occupation.

Could the latest US move reignite tension in the region?
