EU foreign ministers to hold emergency talks on Israel

EU foreign ministers will hold urgent talks tomorrow on the situation in Israel and Gaza after Hamas terrorists launched a devastating surprise assault, the bloc’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell says.

“I am convening tomorrow an emergency meeting of EU Foreign Ministers to address the situation in Israel and in the region,” Borrell writes in a social media post.

Borrell and a number of EU foreign ministers are currently in Oman for long-planned talks with Gulf states from the Gulf Cooperation Council.

A spokesman in Brussels says the EU talks will be held in a hybrid video and in-person format to allow those foreign ministers not in Muscat to participate.

The EU has strongly condemned the unprecedented attack by the Islamist terrorists that has sparked a barrage of strikes by Israel on Gaza.
