The European Union has urged Israel and Hamas to accept a peace plan proposed by US President Joe Biden, aimed at ending the war in Gaza.

The plan includes a three-phase approach to de-escalation, featuring a ceasefire that would become permanent and the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Palestinian territories.

The EU expressed strong support for the roadmap, highlighting the significant loss of civilian lives.

It emphasized that peace and stability in the Middle East are crucial for both peoples, the region, and the world.

Additionally, the EU voiced growing concern over escalating tensions on the Israel-Lebanon border, noting the increasing destruction and displacement of civilians on both sides.

It stated that no one benefits from a broader regional conflict and that de-escalating the situation would greatly aid in resolving the wider Middle Eastern conflict.

Since the war in Gaza began nearly eight months ago, daily military confrontations between the Israeli army and Hezbollah have occurred along the Israel-Lebanon border.

The conflict has resulted in casualties on both sides and has led to the displacement of approximately 150,000 people in both countries.

The EU's call for de-escalation and support for Biden's plan highlights the urgent need for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict and the prevention of further regional instability.
