‘Broader conflict’ must be averted in Israeli-Palestinian violence: EU

Israelis and Palestinians must immediately halt their violence “to prevent a broader conflict” impacting civilian populations, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell warns.

“The EU is dismayed at the large numbers of civilian deaths and injuries, including children,” he said in a statement. “All efforts should be directed at avoiding civilian casualties, and supporting de-escalation.”
