Jerusalem: Statement by the Spokesperson on latest clashes


The EU is deeply concerned by last night’s violent clashes in Jerusalem. These latest incidents follow several nights of tension and violence in Jerusalem, as well as in Jaffa earlier this week.

The EU calls for calm and an immediate lowering of tensions and for restraint and responsibility to be shown by all, in particular by community leaders and officials, at this sensitive time. Incitement and violence have to be rejected by all.
