JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel and Gaza’s armed groups agreed a ceasefire on Saturday to end a sharp surge in cross-border violence.“ Egyptian and international efforts succeeded in ending the current round of escalation,” said a Palestinian official. An Israeli defence official declined to comment on the reported ceasefire, but indicated that Israel’s actions would depend on what happens on the ground. The ceasefire announcement followed what Israel described as its biggest offensive strikes on the Palestinian enclave since Protective Edge — a reference to Israel’s name for its 2014 Gaza operation.
