The Palestinian Authority foreign minister said Friday that Israel and Hamas responded to the Security Council's call for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza with "total disrespect," and he urged the UN's most powerful body to enforce its demand for a halt to the fighting. "We cannot really wait until Israel will complete its mission while it really continues killing Palestinians, not on a daily basis but on an hourly basis," Riad Malki told The Associated Press. If the Security Council doesn't react in the next 48 hours, he said, Arab foreign ministers who came to the Security Council to help draft the resolution "will have a reaction." He did not say what it would be. Hopes dimmed that Thursday night's Security Council resolution would end Gaza's worst fighting in decades after Israel rejected it as "not practical" and Hamas dismissed it, complaining that it had not been consulted.
