The UN Security Council has called for an "immediate and unconditional humanitarian ceasefire" in Gaza.

An emergency session approved a call for a truce over the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr "and beyond".

On Sunday Israel and Palestinian militants continued their offensives despite a 24-hour ceasefire announced by Hamas.

More than 1,030 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 43 Israeli soldiers and two Israeli civilians have been killed.

A Thai national in Israel has also died. The Gaza health ministry on Sunday revised the number of dead down by 30 after some relatives found missing family members.
