U.N. Security Council approves Gaza cease-fire resolution

The U.N. Security Council late Thursday approved a resolution calling for "an immediate, durable and fully-respected ceasefire." It was unclear whether Israel and Hamas would heed the cease-fire call, and if so, how quickly. Earlier Thursday, the U.N. suspended relief deliveries to Gaza after Israeli soldiers opened fire on a truck that was attempting to deliver food, killing one U.N.-contracted truck driver and wounding two others.
