The European Union issues a statement on the deadly terror attack in Jerusalem last night and a second attack in the capital this morning.

“The European Union is horrified by yesterday’s appalling terror attack in a Jerusalem synagogue, that killed at least seven people and left many injured, as they attended Shabbat service, and by this morning’s attack in East Jerusalem, which left two victims injured, one seriously,” the statement says.

“The EU strongly condemns these acts of insane violence and hate.”

“These terrible events demonstrate once again how urgent it is to reverse this spiral of violence and engage in meaningful efforts to restart peace negotiations. We call on all parties not to react to provocations,” the EU adds.
