Washington says it told UN's human rights office not to update its blacklist of companies doing business in areas of Palestine occupied by Israel, arguing it "reinforces" anti-Israel bias.
At least 53 Palestinians have been killed since late March, mostly in the occupied West Bank including Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh who was covering an Israeli raid in Jenin.
