US Awaits Results of Israeli Checkpost Attack Probe

Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland of the United States Department of State said, Thursday, that the U.S. is looking forward to the result of an Israeli investigation into the death of two Palestinian Authority Arabs who attacked a checkpoint in Samaria (Shomron) on Wednesday.

Nuland told reporters at a State Department briefing, "We make the call that we've been making for some time, that both sides, all sides, have to refrain from provocative action, have to refrain from violence and set an environment that is conducive to peace."
