Israel and Hamas agree 72-hour truce to stop fighting
Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas have agreed to a 72-hour truce to stop fighting in Gaza.
The Israeli military says it's withdrawn all its troops from the area, in the Middle East, after four weeks of heavy fighting between the two sides.
The ceasefire began at 6am our time.
Israel claims the main aim of the current conflict - to destroy militants' tunnels - has been achieved.
Gaza officials say the month long conflict has killed 1,800 Palestinians. Some 67 Israelis have also died.
There have been several attempts to stop the fighting before now but none have secured peace.
