EU welcomes ceasefire

The EU’s delegation to Israel welcomes the ceasefire, offering its services in crafting a lasting solution.

“We warmly welcome the announcement of a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and call on all parties to respect its terms,” says a statement released by the office of the High Representative. “There must be an immediate end to the loss of civilian lives. The firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip must stop.”

“We commend all efforts, particularly those of Egypt, to broker this deal and hope that this can be extended into a lasting ceasefire.”

“We call on the parties not to miss this opportunity.”

“We reiterate that the European Union stands ready to contribute to a comprehensive and sustainable solution meeting the legitimate security, humanitarian and socio-economic needs of the Israeli and Palestinian people.”
