AMMAN, Jordan (Reuters) -- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel and Hamas to stick to pledges under a ceasefire deal which came into effect Wednesday to end the eight-day conflict.

"We urge the parties who agreed to the ceasefire to keep their promises. There may be challenges implementing this agreement," Ban told reporters after talks with King Abdullah at the monarch's residence in the Jordanian capital.

Ban urged the two sides to exercise "maximum restraint".
