UN Issues Call For "Immediate" Ceasefire In Gaza

(New York, NY) -- The United Nations Security Council is calling for an "immediate and unconditional" humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. During a midnight meeting in New York, the Security Council expressed "strong support" for a ceasefire in order to allow the delivery of what it called "urgently needed assistance." Israel says today it will fire on Gaza only in response to rocket attacks by Hamas. Israeli military officials made that pledge as Palestinian rocket fire from Gaza declined sharply and Israel eased off its current offensive.
