Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday urged the United Nations Security Council to order an immediate truce between Israel and Hamas.

Abbas, who is based in the West Bank and agreed a power-sharing deal with Gaza's dominant Hamas in April after years of feuding, called for international help: "The Palestinian leadership urges the Security Council to quickly issue a clear condemnation of this Israeli aggression and impose a commitment of a mutual ceasefire immediately," he said.
