EU condemns settler 'brutality' against Palestinians

Nov. 1, 2008 9:21 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 1, 2008 9:21 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - The European Union (EU) condemned settlers' escalating violence against Palestinians in the West Bank on Friday, according to the EU president.

"The European Union once again condemns in the strongest possible terms the acts of violence and brutality committed against Palestinian civilians by Israeli settlers in the West Bank," a statement said.

It added that the EU "would point out that it is up to the Israeli government, which has itself condemned these acts, to take the necessary measures to stop them immediately, in accordance with its international obligations."

The latest condemnations by the EU came amidst increasingly frequent settler attacks against Palestinians and, more recently, against Israeli occupation forces operating in the West Bank.

Seven protesters including two French peace activists were injured by Israeli soldiers who fired live ammunition at a group of protesters at an anti-wall demonstration in the West Bank city of Bil'in near Ramallah.

Among the protesters were Italian Euro-MP Luisa Morgantini and British Liberal Democrat Chris Davies, who was beated by Israeli soldiers.
