The leaders of the 27 countries of the European Union have stressed "Israel's right to defend itself in accordance with humanitarian and international law in the face of violent and indiscriminate attacks" by Hamas, in a joint statement published on Sunday.

“We reaffirm the importance of providing emergency humanitarian assistance and stand ready to continue supporting civilians most in need in Gaza, in coordination with our partners, ensuring that such assistance is not not hijacked by terrorist organizations. It is essential to prevent regional escalation,” they added.
