The European Union says its diplomats were harassed by Israeli settlers earlier today as they conducted a solidarity visit of Palestinian communities in Area C that are currently under threat of displacement by Israel.

“We reiterate our concern over the growing problem of settler violence and call on Israeli authorities to take action against violent settlers, dismantle illegal outposts and provide protection for the occupied Palestinian population,” tweets the EU mission to the Palestinians.
