EU leaders say they are very concerned about the growing violence in Israel and Gaza. They condemned Hamas attacks and stressed that all civilian casualties must be avoided.

Several EU leaders supported Israel’s security in recent days.

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Twitter that she “condemns arbitrary attacks by Hamas against Israel” and that “civilians on both sides must be protected.”

Josep Borrell, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, called for peace between the parties on Thursday night, saying he had “confirmed EU support for Israel’s security and condemned Hamas’ arbitrary firing of rockets” in a conversation with Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi.

According to the Elysee Palace, French President Emmanuel Macron also expressed sympathy with the victims of attacks by Hamas and “other terrorist groups” in talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Macron has said Israel had the right to defend itself.
