‘Fragile’ truce holds in Gaza after three days of Israeli bombardment that killed at least 44 Palestinians.

Israel and the Palestinian armed group Islamic Jihad have declared a truce, raising hopes of an end to three days of fighting in Gaza that has left at least 44 Palestinians dead, including 15 children.

The truce began at 11:30pm local time on Sunday (20:30 GMT) despite a flurry of Israeli air raids and Palestinian rocket attacks up until the last minute.

 Several rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel late on Sunday, breaking the ceasefire a few minutes after it took effect, the Jerusalem Post newspaper reported.

According to the report, the rockets were fired towards southern Israel "just eight minutes" after a ceasefire took effect at 23:30 local time (same as Moscow time).

The press service of the Israeli Defense Forces said air raid sirens went off in districts adjacent to the Gaza Strip shortly after the ceasefire began.
