US State Department Spokesman Ned Price reveals that the 27-year-old Israeli man killed in a terror shooting earlier this evening near the West Bank city of Jericho was an American citizen.

“We condemn the horrific killing of two Israeli brothers near Nablus (yesterday) and the killing today of an Israeli near Jericho,” Price says during the daily press briefing.

US Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides issues a confirmation of his own, tweeting, “I pray for his family.”

The victim’s name has not been released to the press.
