UN Security Council calls for Israel, Hamas to uphold ceasefire

UNITED NATIONS , Nov 21 (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council called on Israel and Hamas to uphold a ceasefire agreement on Wednesday and commended the efforts of Egypt’s President Mohamed Mursi and others for brokering the deal.

The 15-member council also said in a statement that it “deplored the loss of civilian lives resulting from this situation.”

Israel and the Islamist Hamas movement agreed on Wednesday to an Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire to halt an eight-day conflict around the Gaza Strip that has killed more than 162 Palestinians and five Israelis.
