“The Netherlands strongly condemns Iran’s attack on Israel. Further escalation must be avoided. We continue to monitor the situation closely,” Rutte added.

“We strongly condemn the ongoing attack, which could plunge an entire region into chaos. Iran and its proxies must stop this immediately. Israel offers our full solidarity at this time.” said Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

“France reaffirms its commitment to Israel’s security and reinforces its solidarity,” he added.

Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo on X: ‘’Iran is a known state sponsor of terrorism. Its direct attack on Israel is a dangerous escalation of violence in the Middle East. I condemn this large-scale attack on Israel and urge all parties to show restraint. An immediate ceasefire is long overdue.’’

Belgium strongly condemns Iran’s attack on Israel. This is a major escalation and a danger to regional stability. This attack endangers the population and further distance us from peace,’’ said Belgian Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib on X.
