Attack on Israel: France and the EU condemn Iran’s attitude “in the strongest terms”

France “condemns with the greatest firmness” the attack launched by Iran, affirmed Stéphane Séjourné on Twitter this Saturday evening, after the sending of hundreds of Iranian drones towards Israel.

“By deciding on such an unprecedented action, Iran is taking a new level in its destabilizing actions and taking the risk of a military escalation,” writes the Minister of Foreign Affairs on X. France reaffirms its commitment to security of Israel and assures it of its solidarity. »

The European Union has also, through its head of diplomacy Josep Borrell, denounced an “unprecedented escalation” and “a serious threat to regional security”. “The EU condemns the unacceptable Iranian attack on Israel. It constitutes an unprecedented escalation and a serious threat to regional security,” the official said.

The United States, Tel Aviv’s main supporters, also reiterated its commitment to the “defense” of Israel after Iran’s drone attack. President Joe Biden returned to the White House for an emergency meeting of his military and diplomatic team.

Unusually, the American president cut short his weekend in Delaware, more than 150 km from the capital Washington, while fears of reprisals against Israel announced in recent days by Iran were becoming more and more pressing. According to the White House, “Iran has begun an air attack against Israel” which “is expected to take place over several hours.”

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also condemned this “dangerous” attack, assuring that the United Kingdom “would continue to defend the security of Israel”. “Alongside our allies, we are working urgently to stabilize the situation and prevent an escalation. No one wants to see more bloodshed,” Rishi Sunak said in a statement.

“I condemn in the strongest terms the Iranian regime’s dangerous attack on Israel,” he added. “These strikes risk inflaming tensions and destabilizing the region. Iran has demonstrated once again that it wants to sow chaos in its neighborhood. »
