‘Violence against Palestinians unacceptable’

PARIS: France on Monday condemned an attack by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank, saying violence against Palestinian civilians is unacceptable, reports AFP

France was calling on all parties to avoid fuelling the violence, and to contribute to de-escalation, the statement said.

As part of its responsibility as an occupying power the Israeli government needed to protect Palestinian civilians and find the perpetrators of the attacks in which cars and homes were set ablaze in the northern town of Huwara, the ministry said.
