AFP - UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Monday appealed for an immediate halt to the "unacceptable" violence in and around the Gaza Strip in the midst of an Israeli military incursion.
  
"First of all, I'm deeply alarmed by the current escalation of violence in and around Gaza. This is unacceptable," Ban said.
  
"I have been repeatedly condemning the rocket attacks against Israel while recognizing Israel's right to defend itself. I have also condemned the excessive use of force by Israel in Gaza," he said.
  
"Both Israel and Hamas must stop their acts of violence and a ceasefire must be declared immediately."
