Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday warned Israel against launching an attack on the Gaza Strip in response to the recent spat of rocket attacks.

“Any new Israeli aggression would put the entire peace process in real danger,” Abbas said during a meeting in his office with the EU representative to the Palestinian territories, Christian Berger.

Abbas said that an IDF operation would also “lead to the collapse of all international efforts aimed at salvaging peace.”

He urged the EU to play a larger role in the Middle East peace process, “especially because of the EU’s huge political and economic weight, which enables it to impact all parties to back the peace process.”

The PA president also complained about Israel’s policy of construction in settlements and east Jerusalem.
