The President of the European Parliament, Josep Borrell said Thursday that "Israel's disproportionate response can only lead to a worsening of the crisis."
Borrell who is currently visiting China said in a statement that "there will be no possibility of a solution being found if an attitude that disregards international law is maintained." "The explosive situation in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories is dramatic and there is a risk of a return to open warfare. On behalf of the European Parliament, I call upon all the parties to bring this escalation of violence to an immediate end." He also called for the immediate release of the kidnapped Zionist soldiers, reports Trend.
