Saeb Erekat, Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, said Washington had been told of the move after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday his administration was no longer committed to agreements with Israel and the United States, including on security co-ordination.
On co-operation with the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Erekat told reporters in a video call: "It stopped as of the end of the (Palestinian) president’s speech."
Intelligence co-operation with the CIA continued even after the Palestinians began boycotting US peace efforts led by President Donald Trump in 2017, with the sides working together on heading off violence in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, where the Palestinian Authority is based.
Abbas has threatened before to end security ties, without following through. Israeli officials say he needs Israel's support in the face of domestic challenges from the Hamas group.
But Erekat said: "Things change and we have decided it is time now to change."
"Security co-operation with the United States is no more. Security coordination with Israel is no more," said Erekat. "We are going to maintain public order and the rule of law, alone."
The US embassy in occupied Jerusalem declined comment.
