Ceasefire between Hamas and Israel has been agreed

According to an AFP reporter, the sound of gunfire in celebration could be heard in Gaza when Israel and Hamas fighters announced a ceasefire on Friday after 11 days of fighting that saw continued attacks in the Gaza Strip.

The effort follows an Egyptian sponsored initiative and also involves Gaza’s second most powerful militant group, Islamic Jihad.

An Israeli cabinet member said the ceasefire would take effect at 2am Friday local time (7am Malaysian time), about three hours after the announcement was made.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi had earlier directed two security delegations to the illegal lands of Israel and the Palestinian Territories to work for a ceasefire.

So far, the war between the two sides that began on May 10 has claimed the lives of 232 Palestinians, including 65 children.

Israeli Zionists have so far confirmed 12 people with hundreds injured in Hamas rocket attacks.

Amid growing global pressure to stop the bloodshed in Gaza, US President Joe Biden urged Netanyahu to ease tensions while Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations (UN) seek a solution.
