EU Commission president calls on Israel, Iran to refrain from ‘further action’ after reported drone strike

BRUSSELS – European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen calls on Iran, Israel and their allies to refrain from escalation in the Middle East, after sources said Israel carried out an attack on Iranian soil earlier this morning.

“It is absolutely necessary that the region remains stable and that all sides restrain from further action,” von der Leyen says alongside Finnish Prime Minister Petteri Orpo in Lappeenranta, Finland, about 25 km (15 miles) from the Russian border.
