UN Security Council calls for Gaza cease-fire

UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council called for "an immediate and unconditional humanitarian cease-fire" in the Gaza war between

Israel and Hamas at an emergency meeting just after midnight Monday morning.


The council met as Muslims started celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The pressure for a cease-fire followed new attacks launched by Israel and Hamas on Sunday despite going back and forth over proposals for another temporary halt to nearly three weeks of fighting.


A 12-hour lull Saturday, agreed to by both sides following intense US and United Nations mediation efforts, could not be sustained.
