The United States condemned on Wednesday night a "price tag" attack carried out earlier that day against a mosque in the West Bank.

"Hateful, dangerous, and provocative actions such as these are never justified," said spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

"We note that the Israeli Government has pledged to capture those responsible for these reprehensible attacks and to bring the perpetrators to justice," she continued. "We encourage law enforcement officials to do so expeditiously and we encourage local authorities to work together with the community to reduce tension and to defend religious freedom."
