Photos capture joy in Gaza’s streets as Israel-Hamas truce begins after 11 days of violence


During the last round of major conflicts between the two, in 2014, nine separate ceasefires were called before a lasting, if tense, peace was found. 

Al Jazeera wrote that the ceasefire was called after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced that his security cabinet had voted unanimously to accept the Egyptian-mediated truce.

The AP reported that senior Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya called the truce a “victory” when he addressed a crowd in Gaza City.
