“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.
