Palestinian groups reach ceasefire with Israel

Palestinian resistance groups in the Gaza Strip, including Islamic Jihad, have reached an Egypt-mediated ceasefire with Israel.
The agreement also requires that Palestinian factions ensure a return to calm in Gaza and maintain peace during anti-occupation protests. The truce comes after three days of deadly Israeli aggression against Gaza and the retaliatory Palestinian rocket fire at Israel. The recent escalation followed the Israeli assassination of a top Islamic Jihad commander. 34 people, including eight members of a single family in the city of Dayr al-Balah, have been killed and over a hundred others injured in Israeli aerial raids since Tuesday. Palestinian groups have launched 360 retaliatory rocket attacks on Israeli cities including Tel Aviv since then.
