UN passes Gaza ceasefire resolution

The UN Security Council has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza that Arab nations hope will put an end to Israel's 14-day assault on the territory.

The resolution, passed on Thursday with 14 votes in favour and only the US abstaining,"stresses the urgency of and calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected ceasefire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza".

The resolution also called for arrangements in Gaza to prevent arms smuggling to Palestinian fighters and reopen border crossings.

It said there should be "unimpeded provision" and distribution of aid to the territory, where more than 763 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its offensive.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, said he was "heartened and relieved" by the passing of the resolution.

UN call fails to stop Gaza violence

A series of explosions has been heard across the Gaza Strip despite the UN Security Council passing a resolution calling for an "immediate ceasefire" there.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Awad, reporting from the Israel-Gaza border, said air strikes and gunfire had continued in the early hours of Friday, moments after the resolution had passed.

About half a dozen explosions were heard in Gaza as council members at the UN building in New York were extolling the virtues of the resolution that came after days of diplomatic wrangling.

And there was no sign that Israel would stop its offensive in the Palestinian territory – now in its 14th day.

Al Jazeera understands that six Palestinians were killed in an air strike in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, raising the Palestinian death toll in Gaza to around 770, including more than 200 children, since the Israeli offensive began on December 27.more..
