EU Strongly Condemns Rocket Fire


The European Union has issued a strong condemnation of Hamas’ attacks on Israel and human rights abuses within Gaza. A statement published after a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers condemned “the indiscriminate firing of rockets into Israel by Hamas and militant groups in the Gaza Strip, directly harming civilians.”

The EU also condemned “calls on the civilian population of Gaza to offer themselves as human shields” – a sign of recognition of Israel’s repeated warnings that Hamas is deliberately putting Gaza civilians in harm’s way.
