Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday morning strongly condemned the "price tag" attack on a West Bank mosque, calling it a "criminal act" and promising a swift response by the IDF.

"This is a grave and criminal act meant to destroy the social fabric in the region and distract the IDF from its missions, which include protecting Israeli citizens in the region," Barak said. "I have instructed the IDF and security forces to act with all available means in order to capture the perpetrators and to bring them to justice."
