EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton condemned Wednesday's terror
attack in Jerusalem, saying "I express my condolences to the family of
the deceased, and extend my sincere wishes to the persons injured for
their full and speedy recovery."
Ashton also condemned rocket attacks coming from the Gaza Strip, adding
that "attacks on any civilians are completely unacceptable in any
circumstance." Ashton urged acting parties to show restrain and "avoid
further escalation of violence," and a "lasting truce in Gaza."
Ashton also mentioned with regret the deaths in the Gaza Strip resulting
from IDF attacks on terrorists firing rockets against Israel.
