UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) -- The UN Security Council called on Israel and Hamas to uphold a ceasefire agreement Wednesday and commended the efforts of Egypt's President Mohamed Mursi and others for brokering the deal.

The 15-member council also said in a statement that it "deplored the loss of civilian lives resulting from this situation."

Israel and Hamas agreed on Wednesday to an Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire to halt an eight-day conflict around the Gaza Strip that has killed more than 170 Palestinians and five Israelis.
