Washington: Condemning the attack on a mosque in Northern Israel, the US has asked the law enforcement authorities there to bring perpetrators of the crime to justice.

"The United States strongly condemns the dangerous and provocative attacks on a mosque in the Northern Israeli town of Tuba-Zangariyye, which took place on October 3," US State Department spokesperson, Victoria Nuland, said.

"Such hateful sectarian actions are never justified. We note that the Israeli Government also strongly condemned the attacks, and we endorse stepped-up efforts by law enforcement authorities to act vigorously to bring to justice those responsible for this heinous act and similar attacks that have taken place in the West Bank," Nuland said in a statement.
