The United States condemned the killing of two Israel soldiers in the West Bank, in a statement issued in New York, where diplomats are gathering for the UN General Assembly.

An Israeli soldier was shot dead on Sunday in Hebron and another soldier was killed  on Friday by a Palestinian who had lured him to his hometown in the West Bank.

"Such violence and terror are unacceptable, and undermine efforts to establish the positive atmosphere the parties need to progress in peace negotiations," US Department of State Spokesperson Jen Psaki said in an emailed statement.
