Palestine urges Europe to pressure Israel against West Bank conflict

Palestine has urged European countries to link their relations with Israel to their adherence to international law, UN resolutions and human rights principles.

“The international community is required to hold Israel directly responsible for the escalation in the West Bank against the Palestinians, and exert real pressure to stop it immediately,” the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“Israel insists on escalating the situation and we seriously see the dangers of this escalation which serves its interests,” the Xinhua news agency quoted the statement as saying.

The call came ahead of the 12th meeting of the EU-Israel Association Council, to be held in Brussels. The meeting will cover topics such as trade, energy, climate change, culture, science and technology.

The meeting takes place amid ongoing tensions between the Israeli army and Palestinians in the West Bank.

Since the beginning of January, more than 100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank, according to official Palestinian figures. In contrast, 18 Israelis have been killed in attacks carried out by Palestinians in Israeli cities since March.
