The G7 leaders—of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the European Union—condemned the Iranian regime’s “unprecedented” attack on Israel “unequivocally” and “in the strongest terms” on Sunday.

“Iran fired hundreds of drones and missiles towards Israel,” the G7 stated. “Israel, with the help of its partners, defeated the attack. We express our full solidarity and support to Israel and its people, and reaffirm our commitment towards its security.”

The Iranian regime “further stepped toward the destabilization of the region and risks provoking an uncontrollable regional escalation. This must be avoided,” per the G7. “We will continue to work to stabilize the situation and avoid further escalation.”

“In this spirit, we demand that Iran and its proxies cease their attacks, and we stand ready to take further measures now and in response to further destabilizing initiatives,” the leaders stated.
 
“We will also strengthen our cooperation to end the crisis in Gaza, including by continuing to work towards an immediate and sustainable ceasefire and the release of hostages by Hamas, and deliver increased humanitarian assistance to Palestinians in need,” they added.
