Ceasefire between Israel, Hamas comes into force

Ceasefire between Israel, Hamas comes into force

A ceasefire brokered by between Israel and the Islamist Hamas militants who run the Palestinian Gaza Strip officially came into force early Friday at 2 a.m. (2300GMT Thursday).

Only celebratory gunfire was heard on Gaza streets, AFP journalists said, while no Hamas rockets were fired on Israel in the minutes after the Egypt-brokered truce began, which seeks to end 11 days of deadly clashes.
