BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union leaders believe it’s time to lay the foundations for a future relationship between Israel and the Palestinians where the militant group Hamas does not control Gaza.

As the Palestinian death toll climbed beyond 7,000 and Israel carried out airstrikes on Friday, EU leaders called for a peace conference and a future political settlement that would stop such a conflict from ever starting again. Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo says war is not the solution, and that “at some point a political dialogue needs to start.”
