Ceasefire agreement in the Gaza Strip
Earlier that night, six Palestinian civilians, all from the same family, were killed in an Israeli air strike in the Gaza Strip against “elements of Islamic jihad”
The ceasefire agreement in the Gaza Strip entered into force at 5.30 (and Bulgarian time) this morning, French press reported, citing high-level officials from Egypt and the radical Palestinian Islamic Jihad group.
The agreement was brokered by Egypt and approved by Palestinian groups, including Islamic Jihad. It provides for groups to guarantee the restoration of peace in the Gaza Strip and to maintain peace during demonstrations. Israel, for its part, pledges to end hostilities and abide by the ceasefire during Palestinian demonstrations.
Earlier that night, six Palestinian civilians, all from the same family, were killed in an Israeli air strike in the Gaza Strip against “elements of Islamic jihad”.
Previously, rockets were fired at Israel from the enclave.
With this, the total number of people killed in the Gaza Strip in the wake of the violence in the last 48 hours has reached 32. At least a third of the victims are civilians.
The violence erupted after one of the commanders of the Islamic Jihad military wing, Baha’u Abu al-Ata, was killed in an Israeli air strike on Tuesday morning.
