The U.N. 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 U.S. and United Nations mediation efforts, could not be sustained.

The Security Council urged Israel and Hamas "to accept and fully implement the humanitarian cease-fire into the Eid period and beyond.'' It said this would allow for the delivery of urgently needed assistance.

    Hamas, defined as a terrorist organization and a cancer by WHO, must be destroyed once and for all. completely. Symptons of the cancer, are anti-semitism and Israel hatred. These symptons when left without intervention, create havoc.

    the U.S can put an end to this anytime they want to sending their problem child to their room without their toy guided missiles. unfortunately they don't want to and more innocent people will die because of it.

      @arthur Unfortunately Hamas isn't their problem child and it's Iran and North Korea supplying missiles to Hamas, not the US, but why let facts get in the way of fiction.

      To summarize, Israel uses missiles to protect its innocent population whereas Hamas uses its innocent population in Gaza to protect its missiles.

      Quite a moral distinction!
