The EU said it was “appalled” by the “unnecessary force” used by Israeli police at a Jerusalem hospital ahead of the funeral of slain Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

“EU and likeminded partners attended the funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh in occupied east Jerusalem. Appalled by the violence in the St Joseph Hospital compound and the level of unnecessary force exercised by Israeli police throughout the funeral procession,” the EU said in a tweet.
