The Palestine Liberation Organization called on the European Union on Tuesday to "reconsider" it political and trade relations with Israel over what it called "provocations."

Hanan Ashrawi, a PLO Executive Committee member, praised the EU condemnation of Israeli settlement plans, but said it should go further.



“We call on the EU to hold Israel accountable for its illegal occupation of Palestine, reconsider its political and trade relations with Israel and agreements, including the EU-Israel Association agreement, implement a ban on Israeli settler products and extremist settlers, and rescue the chances for peace and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital,” Ashrawi said.

Specifically, she condemned Israel for "settlement activities and the rise of settler violence," as well as "the blatant attack on Palestinian security forces, the raiding and plundering of the offices of Palestinian NGOs and civil society organizations, and the increase in home demolitions.”
