Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs condemned on Thursday the recent rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip.

"I strongly condemn the recent rocket attacks on Israel, for which the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which is listed by the EU as a terrorist organization, has claimed responsibility. There can be absolutely no justification for the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians, and I call for an immediate end to such acts," Ashton said.
