NEW YORK - UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-Moon condemned the arson attack by Palestinian protesters on Joseph's Tomb in Nablus in the West Bank on Friday.

"This reprehensible act is yet another example of the escalating violence in the region, threatening to further inflame sensitivities owing to the religious significance of Joseph’s Tomb," he said in a statement.

Ban added he welcomes President Mahmoud Abbas’ condemnation of the attack and Said he looks forward to a "thorough investigation to quickly bring the perpetrators to justice."

The Secretary-General also called on all sides to "respect the sanctity of all holy sites, refrain from any inflammatory actions or statements and reject the extremist elements that are pursuing a political agenda seeking to transform the current situation into a religious conflict."
