European Union Ambassador to Israel Emanuele Giaufret says he is “extremely concerned” by spiraling tensions between Israel and the Palestinians in East Jerusalem.
The EU diplomat also condemns rocket fire on Israel from the Gaza Strip as “totally unacceptable.”
Extremely concerned by today’s violence in East Jerusalem. The firing of rockets from Gaza to Israel is totally unacceptable and needs to stop. We need immediate deescalation to step back from the brink and protect civilians.
