BERLIN - Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has urged Germany to help find a solution to the conflict in Gaza and send inspectors to Gaza's borders along with other European Union countries.

Mediators were working on Thursday to extend a truce between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza after a month of bloodshed. A three-day cease-fire was due to expire on Friday morning.

Lieberman told Thursday's mass-selling German daily Bild that Germany had a "very significant" role to play in preventing an economic and humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, where Israel and Egypt maintain tight restrictions on the movement of goods and people to try to prevent arms reaching Islamist militants.
