The UN Security Council has called for a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, as Palestinian deaths continue to mount.

All 15 members approved a statement calling for de-escalation, the “restoration of calm” and a resumption of peace talks.

At least 133 Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its operation five days ago, Palestinian sources say.

Israel says it has been hit by 43 rockets since Friday, suffering damage.
