Burning of a Mosque in West Bank
Deputy Spokesperson, Office of the Spokesperson
The United States condemns the burning and vandalizing of a mosque in the West Bank village of Al-Mughayyir today. 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.
