UN calls for Israel-Gaza ceasefire

Gaza bombardmentThe UN Security Council has called for a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, as Palestinian deaths continue to mount. All 15 members approved a statement calling for calm and peace talks.

At least 133 Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its operation five days ago, Palestinian sources say.  Israel said it was hit by about 90 rockets on Saturday, and several were intercepted over Tel Aviv after Hamas said it would target the city.

It is the first time since Israel's offensive began that the UN Security Council has issued a statement, with members previously divided on their response.

The problem has been finding a form of words that Arab nations, represented on the Security Council by Jordan, find meaningful but which the US, Israel's close ally, could also agree with, the BBC's Nick Bryant reports from the UN.

The Security Council members expressed serious concern regarding the crisis related to Gaza and the protection and welfare of civilians on both sides.

The Security Council members called for de-escalation of the situation, restoration of calm, and reinstitution of the November 2012 ceasefire.
