Ireland pushing for EU unanimity on sanctions for extremist West Bank settlers

Ireland’s foreign minister Micheal Martin says he hopes to get unanimity from the EU regarding sanctions against violent settlers in the West Bank, as the world is “shocked” at the level of “inhumanity” within Gaza.

“Ireland favors sanctions on violent settlers in the West Bank, we regret that unity and unanimity still hasn’t occurred within the Foreign Affairs Council to date,” he says ahead of the meeting of EU’s foreign ministers, adding that Gaza’s ordinary people are living “hell on earth” at the moment.
