Statement by the Presidency of the European Union on behalf of the
European Union on the events on the Esplanade of the Mosques in Jerusalem


The European Union is deeply concerned at the serious events of yesterday and today on the Esplanade of the Mosques in Jerusalem. It roundly condemns the acts of provocation and violence committed as well as those perpetrated over the last few days in the Gaza Strip and on the West Bank.

In these tragic circumstances, the Union expresses its heartfelt sympathy to the victims and their families.

The Union calls on all sides to refrain from any form of provocation or action which might give rise to further confrontation.
