In an unusual twist, a Vlaams Belang politician has filed a complaint with the European Union over its failure to protect European citizens from rocket attacks originating in Gaza.
Our Flemish correspondent VH has translated a report from Het Laatste Nieuws:
Hugo Coveliers [Vlaams Belang] has lodged a complaint against the EU for failing to protect citizens against missiles from Gaza
Vlaams Belang Senator Hugo Coveliers, together with his son Roel Coveliers and an Israeli lawyer, have lodged a complaint with the European Commission on behalf of 15 EU citizens who are living in Israel. The EU failed to sufficiently protect its citizens against Qassam rockets from Gaza.

The citizens have British, French, Italian, and Hungarian nationality and reside in Israeli towns in the vicinity of Gaza, which are regularly bombarded with Qassam rockets from the Gaza Strip.
In the complaint they filed with the European Commission, the citizens ask the European Union to act against the financing of terrorism in Gaza and protect EU citizens against terrorists when they reside in Israel.
The complaint has been forwarded to the Department of Foreign Relations of the European Commission.
