The United States condemned the recent "price-tag" attacks in the West Bank, calling the incidents "hateful" and demanding the culprits be arrested.

"The US strongly condemns the dangerous and provocative attacks on the mosques in the Palestinian villages of Yatma on September 8 and Qusra on September 5. Such hateful actions are never justified. Those responsible should be arrested and subject to the full force of the law," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said Friday.

"We note that the Israeli government likewise condemned the attacks and instructed law enforcement authorities to act vigorously to bring those responsible to justice," she added, warning against the "potential for escalation."

"Violence will not advance, but will impede, the hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on acceptance and respect," Nuland said.
