Militants in Gaza agree to a cease-fire

Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants in Gaza have agreed to a ceasefire with Israel

Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants in Gaza have announced that they have agreed to a cease-fire with Israel.

The groups said Egyptian mediation efforts have succeeded in brokering a ceasefire ending an intense daylong round of cross border violence.

However, it is unclear whether it will hold as warning sirens were heard in southern Israel early on Sunday indicating incoming rocket fire once again.
