European stocks took a downward turn on Friday afternoon, amid intensifying fears of a military confrontation in the Middle East.

Despite making gains on Friday morning, the pan-European Stoxx 600 traded lower at 384,76 during afternoon deals and ended the session in the red. Most sectors and major bourses were in negative territory.

Oil and gas stocks bucked the trend, gaining 0.6% as oil prices rose. Brent crude exceeded $65 a barrel on Friday amid fears the U.S. may launch a military attack on Iran that would disrupt Middle Eastern oil exports.
