The United States on Friday condemned "in the strongest possible terms" Thursday's attack on a Palestinian taxi in the West Bank.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the victims, among them children, and we hope for their speedy recovery. We note that the Government of Israel has also condemned this heinous attack and pledged to bring the perpetrators to justice. We look to Israeli law enforcement officials to do so expeditiously. We urge all parties to avoid any actions that could lead to an escalation of violence," the US State Department said in a statement.
