GAZA (Reuters) – The Israel-Gaza border fell quiet on Wednesday under a de facto ceasefire after the most intense flare-up of hostilities between Palestinian militants and Israel since a 2014 war. Hamas militants and Islamic Jihad fired rockets and mortar bombs throughout Tuesday and overnight, to which Israel responded with tank and air strikes. There were no reports of further attacks after Hamas announced a cease fire if Israel did the same. Israel signalled it would halt strikes if the rocket barrages stopped.
