"The PM has been clear that both sides in the Gaza conflict need to observe a ceasefire," a Downing Street spokesman said.

"We are shocked that Ed Miliband would seek to misrepresent that position and play politics with such a serious issue."

More than 1,650 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed since the start of the conflict, while Israel has lost 63 soldiers and three civilians.
