Security Council Calls for End to Gaza Hostilities


The United Nations (UN) Security Council urged Israel and Hamas on Saturday to end their hostilities in Gaza, calling on both sides to respect "international humanitarian laws" and stop the loss of life, AFP reported.

In a unanimous declaration, the 15-member Council called for a de-escalation of the crisis and urged a return to the "calm and restitution of the November 2012 ceasefire."
