Gaza ceasefire holding following bloody weekend

A ceasefire has been reached between Israel and Palestinian factions, according to the latter, seeming to put an end to violence that has rocked the Gaza Strip since Friday, and left 23 Palestinians and four civilians in Israel dead.

According to Palestinian officials, the ceasefire came into effect at 4.30am local time (01:30 GMT), after Israel and Hamas, the movement that governs the Strip, agreed to taper the fighting that reached a peak on Sunday.

As is common in such situations, Israel has not publicly commented on whether a ceasefire has been reached.

However, there appeared to be no rocket fire coming from Gaza following the Palestinians’ announcement.
