BRUSSELS (AFP) -- World powers trying to broker peace in the Middle East warned Saturday there is a "risk of escalation" after three days of fighting over Gaza, and urged key players in the region to hit the brakes.

"The Quartet remains concerned about the unsustainable situation in Gaza as well as the risk of escalation, and calls for restraint from all sides," read a statement agreed by the European Union, the Palestinians' largest aid donor, Russia, the UN and the US.
