EU chief Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday backed imposing sanctions on “extremist” Israeli settlers responsible for attacks on Palestinians in the West Bank.

“I am in favour of sanctioning those involved in the attacks in the West Bank. They must be held accountable. This violence has nothing to do with the fight against Hamas and must stop,” the European Commission president told EU lawmakers.
