UN special coordinator for the Middle East Peace process Robert Serry on Thursday expressed deep concern over a resurgence of violence in Gaza and southern Israel.

"In the interest of protecting the lives of civilians and for the calm to succeed, a complete halt to the firing of rockets from Gaza and a display of maximum restraint by Israel are required,” Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted Serry as saying.

The UN official urged all sides involved "to immediately take steps to prevent any further escalation.”
