U.N. Security Council Calls for Gaza Cease-Fire

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 Associated Press reported. The council urged Israel and Hamas "to accept and fully implement" the truce that would allow for the delivery of urgently needed assistance. The 20-day war has killed more than 1,030 Palestinians, mainly civilians, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
