The reported ceasefire follows two days of violence

A ceasefire has come into effect after two days of fighting between Israel and militants in Gaza, Egyptian, UN and militant sources say.

The violence began after an Israeli air strike killed a Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) commander.

Israel has not confirmed the ceasefire.

Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry says 32 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire, while 63 people have been treated for injuries and stress symptoms in Israel.

A PIJ spokesman told the BBC the ceasefire came into effect at 05: 30 local time (03: 30 GMT).

A senior Egyptian official told AFP news agency the ceasefire agreement came “as a result of Egypt’s efforts”.

UN Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov said both the UN and Egypt had “worked hard to prevent the most dangerous escalation in and around Gaza from leading to war.”

In a tweet, he called on both sides to “show maximum restraint and do their part to prevent bloodshed“.

Apart from a lone rocket launch witnessed by a Reuters correspondent, Gaza appeared to have fallen mostly silent at the hour cited by Islamic Jihad, with the quiet holding past sunrise.

However, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said there were still warnings 90 minutes later.
