Report: US conveys anger, concern to Israel after settler rampage

Washington has conveyed sharp messages of concern to Israel following a violent rampage by settlers in Huwara yesterday, Channel 12 reports, with top American officials telling Israelis that the US expects Jerusalem to act for immediate calm and to prevent a recurrence.

The report says the Americans were flabbergasted that such an event should happen on the same day of a summit in Jordan in which Israel agreed to push for calm.

It adds that the administration was “very disappointed” over the fact that Israeli ministers quickly and publicly rejected the understandings reached in Jordan.

“There was an Israeli commitment here and we expect them to live up to it,” an official tells the network.
