CFSP Statement
Declaration by the Presidency of the European Union on the firing of rockets at Gush Katif and Sderot in the Gaza Strip

Date of release : 07-06-2005

Policy area : General Affairs and External Relations


The Presidency condemns the firing of rockets by Palestinians at Gush Katif in the Gaza Strip and against Sderot, which resulted in the death of two people and  others being injured. On behalf of the European Union, the Presidency offers its sincere condolences to the victims’ families.

The Presidency is concerned about these acts of violence which go against the Sharm el-Sheikh commitments and the Cairo agreements. It urges the Palestinian authorities to do all they can to prevent such acts from happening in the future. These acts are even more regrettable as they occur at this crucial time where real hope exists for the relaunch of  the peace process.

The European Union calls on all parties to prevent these acts from crippling the efforts for a negotiated, just and lasting peace. It will continue to lend its  support to all who aspire to peace and security.
