 Palestinians in Gaza must stop their rocket fire toward Israel, the European Union said in a sharply worded statement.

“The rocket fire from Gaza towards Israel must stop immediately. A de-escalation of this dangerous situation is urgently needed to ensure that civilians' lives are protected. Israelis and Palestinians both have the right to live in peace, security and dignity,” the spokesperson for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said in a statement.“Only a political solution can put an end to the violence. Efforts by Egypt and the UN to calm the situation have the European Union’s full support," the spokesperson said.
