Statements by the Spokesperson

The European Union strongly condemns the firing of rockets from southern Lebanon towards northern Israel and the occupied Golan Heights including those for which the “Islamic Resistance” has claimed responsibility.

The European Union is following closely the developments that ensued over the last days, including the artillery and air strikes response by Israel. It is crucial for all parties to exercise utmost restraint and work towards a quick resolution of the current tensions.

The relevant UN Security Council resolutions 1559 and 1701 must be fully respected. 

The European Union also reiterates its full support to UNIFIL efforts and the importance of Lebanon’s commitment to a policy of disassociation from all regional conflicts, in line with the Baabda Declaration.
