US condemns mosque arson

WASHINGTON (Ma'an) -- In a statement delivered by a White House spokesman, the United States condemned Tuesday "the burning and vandalizing of a mosque in the West Bank village of Al-Mughayyir."

Villagers said the arson was carried out by local settlers, who spray painted in Hebrew the words "price tag" and the name of a recently evacuated settlement outpost on the walls of the mosque.

"This attack is the latest of several such acts of violence against West Bank mosques. These incidents have served to undermine efforts to promote a comprehensive peace in the region. We call on the Israeli government to investigate this attack and bring the perpetrators to justice, and for calm from all parties," the spokesman said.
