Hague urges Gaza ceasefire

Hague urges Gaza ceasefire
William Hague had led fresh calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, urging Israel to take "every opportunity" to de-escalate the fighting.

Speaking from Brussels this morning, the Foreign Secretary called on Hamas to cease all rocket attacks, but warned Israel it also has "responsibilities" to end the violence.

"We want efforts to negotiate a ceasefire to succeed. I spoke to the Egyptian Foreign Minister about that yesterday and Egypt are making strong efforts in that regard," he told reporters.

"Part of any ceasefire has to be a cessation of rocket attacks against Israel but everyone has responsibilities. Israel has responsibilities too, to take every opportunity to de-escalate the violence and to avoid civilian casualties, to observe international humanitarian law."

Meanwhile UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon this morning called for an immediate ceasefire, as he travels to Cairo to join talks on a truce.
