Statement by the Spokesperson of EU High Representative
Catherine Ashton on the attack against the Al-Nurayn mosque
in the West Bank

The spokesperson of Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the Commission, issued the following statement yesterday:

The High Representative strongly condemns the setting on fire and vandalising of the Al-Nurayn mosque in Qusra in the West Bank on Monday. Attacks against places of worship undermine the freedom of religion or belief which is a fundamental human right. The High Representative calls on the Israeli authorities to investigate the attack, bring the perpetrators to justice and prevent such attacks happening again.

These provocations seriously undermine efforts to build the necessary trust for a comprehensive peace in the region. The EU will continue to work for a peaceful and negotiated resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
