WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is strongly condemning Tuesday's attack at a synagogue in Israel that killed four people, including three U.S. citizens.

The president says there can be no justification for such attacks. Obama is urging both Israeli and Palestinian leaders and ordinary citizens to "work cooperatively to lower tensions, reject violence and seek a path forward towards peace."

Secretary of State John Kerry, traveling in London, also condemned the attack. Kerry demanded that the Palestinian leadership take immediate steps to end incitement to violence. Kerry spoke by phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express condolences.
