Israel is considering retaliatory measures against the Palestinians in response to their renewed drive for international recognition of their promised state, Israeli media reported on Friday.Israel says the Palestinians' application on Tuesday to adhere to 15 international treaties violated the undertakings they gave when the peace talks resumed last July.The Palestinians counter that the treaty move was a response to Israel's failure to release a fourth and final batch of veteran Arab prisoners which they say reneged on its own undertakings.Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who is Israel's chief negotiator in the peace talks, told the Palestinians on Thursday that there had been a chance of a belated release of the final batch of prisoners, who had been scheduled to be freed last weekend.
