Ban urges Israel, Palestinians to stop fighting, start talking

TEL AVIV: Chief of United Nation Organization (UNO) Ban Ki-moon Tuesday urged Israel and the Palestinians to stop the ongoing fighting in Gaza and begin negotiating.

“My message is the same for Israelis and Palestinians: Stop fighting, start talking and take on the root causes of the conflict so that we are not at the same situation in the next six months or a year,” he said at a news conference in Tel Aviv.
