Palestinians gathered in the East Jerusalem on Friday to celebrate as a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas came into effect.
Firecrackers lit the sky as people waved Palestinian and Hamas flags and honked their car horns.
Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip on Thursday night, as the White House said Israeli forces were in a position to start “winding down” their bombardment of the Palestinian enclave.
After a two-hour meeting, Israeli ministers voted in favour of a ceasefire, which according to Israeli media reports was due to come into effect at 2am on Friday.
The Israeli cabinet decision was unanimous, the Israeli broadcaster Kan said on Thursday night.
In a statement on Thursday night, Israel said the ceasefire was brokered by Egypt and that it would be mutual and unconditional.
