A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has just come into force, having been hammered out during marathon negotiations hosted by Egypt. Israel has been pounding the Palestinian territory with missiles from both the air and sea for more than a week in response to Hamas' cross-border rocket fire.
Following eight days of intense shelling that left over 150 people killed, a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has come into effect. The truce was announced by Egypt's foreign minister and confirmed by both Israeli and Palestinian officials.
