UN Special Coordinator for Middle East peace process Nickolay E. Mladenov said that he was working closely with Egypt in light of the escalation in the Gaza-Israeli conflict. "#UN is working closely with #Egypt and all concerned to ensure that #Gaza steps back from the brink," Mladenov wrote on Twitter. "The escalation in the past 24hrs is EXTREMELY dangerous and reckless. Rockets must STOP, restraint must be shown by all! No effort must be spared to reverse the spiral of violence," he added.
