BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union on Wednesday called on Palestinian militants to stop rocket and mortar fire from Gaza towards Israel, saying attacks targeting civilians were “unacceptable”.
“The rocket and mortar fire by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards Israel must stop immediately,” the European Commission said in a statement. “Indiscriminate attacks against civilians are completely unacceptable. The first priority now is for de-escalation.”
