Syrian President Bashar Assad on Friday called for the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution forcing Israel to immediately halt its week-long offensive on the Gaza Strip. Syria's official news agency SANA reported that Assad made the plea during a telephone conversation with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Israeli operation, which is aimed at silencing Hamas rockets, has killed more than 400 Palestinians and stirred up anger across the Arab world. The Security Council on Wednesday night discussed an Arab request for a binding resolution condemning Israel, but it was rejected by the United States which said it was "unacceptable" and "unbalanced" as it made no mention of halting the Hamas rocket attacks.
