Statement of 10 October 2016 on the terror attack in Jerusalem

Statement of Fulvio Martusciello, Chairman of the Delegation for relations with Israel:

On behalf of the Members of the Delegation for relations with Israel, I deplore the terrorist attack perpetrated in Jerusalem on Sunday 9 October 2016 by a Palestinian.

This despicable act of terror, which resulted in the death of two innocent Israeli citizens - a pedestrian and a policeman and injured six other people waiting at a tram stop - is a step against peace and shows that the Fight against terrorism is still a priority. Palestinians must decide if they are a partner for peace or not.

Statement of 27 August 2014 on the Gaza ceasefire agreement

Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament:

I warmly welcome the agreement on a permanent ceasefire in Gaza and call on all parties to comply fully with the terms agreed. The easing of the blockade is an encouraging step.

The European Union and the international community now have to step up efforts to tackle the urgent humanitarian needs, the security concerns of both Israelis and Palestinians and the reconstruction of Gaza.

I praise the Egyptian authority for their decisive mediation. I salute the work of UNRWA and all humanitarian organizations for their unparalleled endeavour in extremely precarious conditions.

The European Union is a key partner for both Israelis and Palestinians and in this regard must play a more active role aimed at achieving a just and lasting peace.
