There’s a truce between Hamas and Israel – ending the weeklong fighting between the two sides.
The ceasefire came into effect at 9pm Egyptian time.
Egypt is the guarantor of the deal.
After 24 hours of quiet, Gaza’s border crossings with Israel are due to be opened further to allow freer movement of goods and people.
The fighting has killed more than 140 Palestinians and five Israelis.
