Egyptian media reports ceasefire has gone into effect

Egyptian media are reporting that a ceasefire between Israel and the Islamic Jihad terror group in Gaza has gone into effect.

Earlier reports said Cairo was mediating and Islamic Jihad was keen on bringing the current round of hostilities to a halt.

There is no immediate confirmation from Israel, which often does not acknowledge truce deals reached with terror groups.

Despite the report of a ceasefire, rocket warning sirens continue to sound in Kissufim, near the Gaza border.
