European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza on Saturday.
"We are very concerned at the events in Gaza. We call for an immediate ceasefire and urge everybody to exert maximum restraint," his spokesman said.
"Everything must be done to renew the truce," he added.
Israeli war planes and combat helicopters pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 155 people and prompting rocket fire from Palestinian militants that killed an Israeli, medics said.
