Clashes broke out between Israeli security forces and Palestinians at the al-Aqsa religious shrine in Jerusalem last 10. Hamas launched a rocket attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip in response to the attack on Palestinians. The Israeli security forces retaliated against the Hamas-held Gaza Strip. After more than a week of fighting, the death toll exceeded 260.
Countries around the world, including the UNITED States, were trying to stop the fighting. Egypt mediated between Israel and Hamas. Qatar and the United Nations also made reconciliation efforts.
As a result, a mutual and continuous ceasefire agreement has been signed with Israel. The 11-day ceasefire agreement came into effect from 2 am Indian time. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet approves Hamas ceasefire agreement.
