The European Union on Wednesday called Israel's attack on a UN observation post in southern Lebanon unacceptable and demanded a full investigation into the incident. "Attacks against UN personnel are unacceptable," the EU presidency said, and called for "an immediate and full inquiry into this event" which killed four UN peacekeepers on Tuesday. "It is with great shock the presidency has learned" of the attack, said a statement released in Finland, which currently holds the rotating EU presidency. "The presidency again urges all parties to join the efforts to reach an end to the conflict that has already left hundreds of civilians dead."
