UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) -- The UN chief on Wednesday called on Israel and Hamas to prevent an escalation of hostilities in the Gaza Strip and urged both sides to ensure civilians will be protected, a UN spokesman said.

"The Secretary-General calls for an immediate de-escalation of tensions," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said, adding that it was a reiteration of Ban's already-stated position.

"Both sides should do everything to avoid further escalation and they must respect their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure the protection of civilians at all times," he told reporters.
