After the attacks that brought dozens of victims, Israel and Gaza establish a

An uneasy truce between Palestinian militants and Israel was agreed this morning after days of violence that left dozens of Palestinians dead in the Gaza Strip.

Minutes before the ceasefire, which was brokered by Egypt, the Israeli army struck targets in Gaza "in response to rockets fired".

This conflict between Israel and Palestine is the worst violence seen in more than a year. At least 44 Palestinians, including children, have been killed in Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement released Sunday evening, Joe Biden welcomed the ceasefire while thanking Carrion for bringing the two sides to the negotiating table.

The US president also called for an investigation into the civilian casualties, describing them as a "tragedy". Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid's office confirmed the ceasefire, saying it "reserves the right to respond decisively" to attacks by a militant group.

According to Gaza's health ministry, 44 Palestinians, including 15 children and four women, and more than 300 people have been injured since the Israeli military operation began on Friday.
