Borrell said that last night again, deadly terrorist attacks have occurred in Tel Aviv, adding the EU expresses its total condemnation of these acts of violence. This must cease.

This upsurge in violence follows days of tension and clashes at the Holy Sites, including the intervention and the use of force by Israeli police inside the compound of the Al Aqsa mosque, he said in the statement.

The EU condemns the violent incidents which have happened in the Holy Sites and reminds that the status quo of all the Holy Sites must be preserved, according to him.

"We also condemn the indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza and the territory of Lebanon."

The EU calls for an immediate end to the ongoing violence. Everything must be done to prevent the conflict from spreading, he stressed.

"We urge all parties to exercise maximum restraint, to avoid further escalation and promote calm for the ongoing religious holidays."
