The European Commission puts its full portfolio of development aid to Palestinians, worth 691 million euros ($728.66 million), under review.
“The scale of terror and brutality against Israel and its people is a turning point,” Oliver Varhelyi, the EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, said in a post on social media platform X.
“There can be no business as usual,” Varhelyi said.
The decision means that payments are immediately suspended, projects put under review and new budget proposals postponed until further notice, he added.
