Celebrations seen in Gaza after Hamas claims to OK ceasefire

Crowds cheer and fire in the air in the streets of Gaza after Hamas said it approved a ceasefire proposal from mediators Egypt and Qatar.

People cry tears of happiness, chant “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) and shoot in the air in celebration of the news, an AFP correspondent says.

Israel has cautioned that the offer Hamas says it accepted is not the one Jerusalem agreed to.
