–   having regard to Rule 110(2) of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas the ongoing conflict is causing loss of life and unacceptable suffering to the civilian population of both parties involved ;

B.  whereas Parliament has repeatedly expressed its support for the two-state solution with the State of Israel and an independent, democratic, contiguous and viable State of Palestine living side by side in peace and security, and called for the resumption of direct peace talks between the parties;

C. whereas the blockade of, and the humanitarian crisis in, the Gaza Strip continues despite numerous calls by the international community for the immediate, sustained and unconditional opening of crossings for the flow of humanitarian aid, commercial goods and persons to and from Gaza, as also reiterated in the Council conclusions of 14 May 2012;

D. whereas Parliament has repeatedly expressed its strong commitment to the security of the State of Israel; whereas the Council conclusions of 14 May 2012 also reiterated the fundamental commitment of the EU and its Member States to the security of Israel, condemned in the strongest terms violence deliberately targeting civilians, including rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, and called for the effective prevention of arms smuggling into Gaza;

1.  Calls for an immediate end to all rocket and missile attacks from Gaza on Israel and to all Israeli military action against Gaza;

2.  Is deeply concerned about the situation in Gaza and Israel, and strongly urges that an end be put to all attacks, asking both parties to reach an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and in Israeli territory;

3.  Stresses again that peaceful and non-violent means are the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians; calls again for the resumption of direct peace talks between the two parties;

4.  Reiterates its strong support for the two-state solution on the basis of the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as capital of both states, and with the State of Israel and an independent, democratic, contiguous and viable State of Palestine living side by side in peace and security;

5.  Urges the EU and the Member States again to play a more active political role, also within the Quartet, in the efforts aimed at achieving a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians; supports the High Representative in her efforts to create a credible perspective for relaunching the peace process;

6.  Reiterates its call for the lifting of the blockade of the Gaza Strip, linked to an effective control mechanism to prevent the smuggling of arms into Gaza, in recognition of Israel’s legitimate security needs; calls also for steps to be taken to allow the reconstruction and economic recovery of Gaza;

7.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the Vice‑President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the governments and parliaments of the Member States, the EU Special Representative to the Middle East Peace Process, the President of the UN General Assembly, the governments and parliaments of the UN Security Council members, the Middle East Quartet Envoy, the Knesset and the Government of Israel, the President of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Legislative Council.
