The European Union on Monday denounced as "unacceptable" recent inflammatory statements by Hamas leaders in Gaza "that deny Israel’s right to exist," while also condemning Israel for its plans to construct settlements in the controversial E1 corridor in the West Bank.

On Saturday, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal reiterated that the terror group would never accept Israel's legitimacy and pledged to “free the land of Palestine inch by inch.”

In statement released following a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels, the bloc reiterated its "fundamental commitment to the security of Israel, including with regard to vital threats in the region," adding it "will never stop opposing those who embrace and promote violence as a way to achieve political goals."
