Ces derniers jours, plus d'une douzaine de roquettes visant le sud d'Israël ont été tirées depuis Gaza par des groupes armés palestiniens.


The last few days have seen the firing of more than a dozen rockets from Gaza into Southern Israel by Palestinian armed groups. 
The firing of rockets against civilian populations is unacceptable and must stop immediately and unconditionally. The priority should be to work on immediate de-escalation to protect civilian lives. 
Israelis and Palestinians both have the right to live in peace, security and dignity. Only a political solution can put an end to the violence.

L’Union européenne est aux côtés du gouvernement et du peuple malien pour contrer cette violence grave.

Freedom of expression, in all its forms, is the very essence of democracy. Only with a thriving, free and independent media landscape, we can hold governments, businesses and society at large accountable. And precisely for this fundamental right, far too often, journalists and media workers are attacked, persecuted, harassed, or intimidated for carrying out their work. Most journalists are not wounded in the heat of war coverage, but suffer violence in our immediate surroundings. In 2018 alone, 94 journalists and media staff were killed in work-related incidents as reported by the International Federation of Journalists. Hundreds more have been subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention without ever having been tried in a court.
