The White House on Tuesday condemned the arson attack on a West Bank mosque, suspected to have been perpetrated by settlers in a so-called "price tag" attack. White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said: "As we have long maintained, all sides must do all they can to prevent attacks and incitement of this kind."
"We note the Israeli government's condemnation of this attack and call for the perpetrators to be held accountable," he added in a statement.
