French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have called for a “de-escalation” between Israel and Iran, after Israel attacked Iranian targets in Syria, following a rocket attack by Iran on the Golan Heights.
The French presidency said in a statement: "He calls for a de-escalation."
The German Chancellor said after meeting with Macron in Aachen, western Germany, and discussing the Israel-Iran situation:
“We know that this is an extremely complicated situation. The escalations of the past few hours show us that it is truly about war and peace. And I can only call on all sides to exercise restraint here.”
