EU condemns Iranian attack on Israel as ‘unprecedented escalation’

The European Union condemned Iran’s direct air strike on Israel in the “strongest terms” on Sunday.

“This is an unprecedented escalation and a threat to regional security,” the bloc’s chief diplomat, Josep Borrell, said on behalf of the EU on Sunday. “We call on all parties to exercise utmost restraint.”

In this very tense regional situation, further escalation cannot be in anyone’s interest, Borrell said in a statement.

He also reaffirmed the European Union’s commitment to Israel’s security. “The EU remains committed to contributing to de-escalation and security in the region and is in close contact with all parties to this end.”

He spoke with Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Amirabdollahian to convey these messages and urge Iran not to escalate further, Borrell wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday afternoon.

He convened an extraordinary meeting of EU foreign ministers on Tuesday to discuss security in the region.
