UN urges Israel, Hamas to 'step back from the brink'
The UN's envoy for the Israel-Palestinian conflict called on Hamas and Israel to "step back from the brink" of war today, after four people were killed in a serious flare-up in Gaza.
"Everyone in Gaza needs to step back from the brink. Not next week. Not tomorrow. Right NOW!", United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov tweeted.
"Those who want to provoke Palestinians and Israelis into another war must not succeed."
