UN Security Council calls for Gaza cease-fire


UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council has called for "an immediate and unconditional humanitarian cease-fire" in the Gaza war between Israel and Hamas. The council adopted the presidential statement at an emergency meeting just after midnight on Monday as Muslims started celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The call for a cease-fire follows new attacks launched by Israel and Hamas despite going back and forth over proposals for another temporary halt to nearly three weeks of fighting.
