EU: fire by Palestinians towards Israel must stop immediately
The European Union urged to stop fire by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards Israel immediately, spokeswoman for EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Maja Kocijancic said in a statement.
"The rocket and mortar fire by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards Israel must stop immediately. Indiscriminate attacks against civilians are completely unacceptable under any circumstances," the statement says.
The EU stressed that a de-escalation of this dangerous situation is urgently needed to ensure that civilians' lives are protected. "Israelis and Palestinians both have the right to live in peace, security and dignity: the cycle of violence and despair has to be broken with a genuine political process,"
