Palestinians urge U.N. Security Council resolution on ceasefire

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The Palestinian U.N. envoy appealed on Tuesday for the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution calling for a ceasefire in fighting between Israel and Hamas militants as U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon warned that violence had hit alarming levels.

Jordan has drafted a text similar to a 2009 resolution, calling for an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Israeli troops from Gaza, council diplomats said. Jordanian Deputy U.N. Ambassador Mahmoud Hmoud said he would circulate a draft document to the 15-member council later on Tuesday.
