After the ceasefire agreement - sirens sounded again
An Egyptian source and a senior Islamic Jihad official told AFP that a ceasefire came into effect early on Thursday.
The "ceasefire agreement comes as a result of Egypt's efforts" and has been endorsed by "Palestinian factions including Islamic Jihad", said the top Egyptian official.
An Islamic Jihad source confirmed the agreement to AFP.
According to an Islamic Jihad official, the agreement stipulates that Palestinian factions must ensure a return to calm in Gaza and "maintain peace" during demonstrations, while Israel must stop hostilities and "ensure a ceasefire" during demonstrations by Palestinians.

Conflicts between the Israeli army and the Palestinian faction are expected to continue, as sirens sounded in Erez, Yad Mordechai and Moshav Netiv HaAsara.
On the other hand, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said at least 32 people have been killed since the start of Israeli air strikes this week.
Israel will continue targeted elimination of Palestinian militants, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz said.
Gaza health ministry said on Thursday that eight members of the Abu Malhous family were among the 34 Gazans killed in the Israeli assault. At least 63 Israelis received treatment for injuries in rocket attacks fired from Gaza.
"We gave specific conditions for a ceasefire. If Israel accepts them, we will accept a ceasefire. If Israel does not accept them, we are going to continue to fight for an indefinite period of time", Islamic Jihad's Secretary General Ziad Nakhala said on Wednesday.
