Earlier, a senior Palestinian official had told AFP talks that had been due to be held in Jericho later on Monday had been put on hold because of what he termed this "Israeli crime committed in Qalandiya today."
The US State Department, which is mediating the talks process and has representatives attending, denied this, but refused to say whether or not such a meeting had taken place.
"As we have said the parties are engaged in serious and sustained negotiations," Harf said.
"We are not going to announce when every meeting takes place. But again I can assure you that no meeting has been cancelled."
