Ferrero-Waldner 'very concerned' about Gaza fuel decision

Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the European Union's commissioner for external relations, said Monday she was "very concerned" about Israel's decision to reduce fuel supply to Gaza and cut back on electricity to the Strip. While noting the "distress" caused to Israelis by Palestinian rocket fire, she said, "I think collective punishment is never a solution." Ferrero-Waldner spoke during a meeting in Jerusalem.
