Palestinians and Israelis are engaged in a "downward spiral of actions and counter-actions", the UN Secretary-General has warned.

Ban Ki-moon's remarks were delivered during a briefing to the Security Council on the Middle East on Thursday.

Nearly 2,200 Palestinians and 70 Israelis died during a 50-day conflict in the Gaza strip that ended in August 2014.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
