Video: US calls for Israeli investigation into Nakba day killings



BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The US State Department on Tuesday called on Israel to investigate the killing of two Palestinian teenagers on May 15.

"We look to the Government of Israel to conduct a prompt and transparent investigation to determine the facts surrounding this incident, including whether or not the use of force was proportional to the threat posed by the demonstrators," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters.

"We express, of course, our condolences to the families of those deceased and urge all parties to exercise restraint," Psaki said during a press briefing in Washington.
