Brussels, August 06 (QNA) - The European Union on Saturday voiced great concern over the escalation in Gaza Strip, amidst ongoing Israeli aggression on the Strip which claimed so far 15 lives and wounded over 125 others.
"The European Union follows with great concern the latest developments in and around Gaza," EU lead spokesperson for foreign affairs Peter Stano said in a statement.
Stano added that the ongoing escalation has already led to a number of casualties, with number of people killed, including civilians and a five year old Palestinian girl, and over 80 injured.
"The EU calls for maximum restraint on all sides in order to avoid a further escalation and further casualties," he said.
These latest events highlight yet again the need to restore a political horizon and to ensure a sustainable situation in Gaza, the official stressed. (QNA)
