Israel: Statement by the High Representative on the terror attacks in Jerusalem

28.01.2023 EEAS Press Team

The European Union is horrified by yesterday’s appalling terror attack in a Jerusalem synagogue, that killed at least seven people and left many injured, as they attended Shabbat service, and by this morning’s attack in East Jerusalem, which left two victims injured, one seriously. The EU strongly condemns these acts of insane violence and hate.

These terrible events demonstrate once again how urgent it is to reverse this spiral of violence and engage in meaningful efforts to restart peace negotiations. We call on all parties not to react to provocations.
