Gazans, including gunmen, flock to the streets

Thousands of Palestinians flood on to the streets of Gaza City after an open-ended truce agreed between Israel and the Palestinians goes into effect.

Among the celebrants are gunmen — some from Hamas — who fire in the air in celebration just moments after the truce begins, AFP correspondents say.

Mosques use their loudspeakers to broadcast celebratory chants of “God is greatest” as the war-torn enclave hails the apparent end to some of the worst Israeli-Palestinian violence in a decade.
