The US State Department on Tuesday condemned the burning of a Mosque in the West Bank village of al-Muayar located near Ramallah earlier in the day. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement, "The United States condemns the burning and vandalizing of a mosque," noting that the attack, was "the latest of several such acts of violence against West Bank mosques."

Toner added that such incidents serve "to undermine efforts to promote a comprehensive peace in the region," and called on Israel to investigate the attack and bring the perpetrators to justice.
