Borrell to Israel: ‘One Horror Doesn’t Justify Another’

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

“Israel should not be overcome by rage in its response to last month’s Hamas attack,” EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Thursday, declaring that “one horror does not justify another”.

Mr Borrell sought to express solidarity with Israel on his first visit to the country since the October 7 attacks, and voice international concern about Palestinian civilian casualties as Israeli forces seek to destroy Hamas in Gaza.

The EU’s 27 member countries have deeply rooted differences about the wider Palestinian-Israeli conflict and Mr Borrell faced a difficult task as he tried to find middle ground.

Mr Borrell pledged to raise the issue in a meeting this weekend with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim, whose country has been heavily involved in trying to reach a deal to free at least some of the hostages.
