U.S. condemns attack in Israel, condemns Hamas

WASHINGTON, Feb 4 (Reuters) - The United States on Monday condemned an attack by a Palestinian suicide bomber in southern Israel and called on Palestinian leaders to do more to fight terrorism.

"The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attack in Dimona, Israel, today that killed one Israeli citizen and injured many others," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said in a statement.

"We also condemn those terrorist groups, including Hamas, which condone these horrific actions," she said. "We call upon the leaders of the Palestinian Authority, who condemned this attack, to redouble their efforts to act against terrorism." (Reporting by Tabassum Zakaria; editing by Todd Eastham)
