    The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militants in Gaza continues to hold on the second day after coming into effect. With calm restored, thousands of displaced Palestinians are now starting to return to their homes. As Gazans take stock, aid groups warn that the devastation after 11 days of airstrikes and rocket attacks could take years to rebuild.

    Before rebuilding homes and businesses, the arduous work of cleaning up rubble needs to be dealt with.

    The destruction left by Israeli airstrikes, launched in response to Hamas-fired rockets, has added fresh scars to Gaza’s landscape.

    And there’s also been a psychological impact on the enclave’s residents. Humanitarian aid is arriving in Gaza. And it’s urgently needed.

    Among those pledging to help in the Hamas-controlled enclave is the United States. It may take many months and years to rebuild the damage done in just a matter of days. Talks to ensure the Egypt-brokered ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians holds are ongoing – a key step towards finding a lasting solution to this decades-old conflict.
