Jerusalem – Palestine crisis: World pleas for calm 

Global leaders are calling for calm after days of unrest spiralled into retaliatory attacks by Israel and Palestinians. 

The UK, US, and the EU have urged Israel and the Palestinians to lower tensions as soon as possible. 

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Hamas must end the rocket attacks “immediately,” adding: “All sides need to de-escalate.” 

Dominic Raab tweeted the rocket attacks “must stop” calling for “an end to targeting civilian populations.” 

The EU’s Josep Borrell said the “significant upsurge in violence” in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem “needs to stop immediately.”
