Live blog update| Gaza Under Attack


Middle East Eye is wrapping up the live blog on Gaza but we will continue to monitor the situation on our website.

An Egypt-brokered ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian factions came into effect at 11:30pm local time (8:30pm GMT) on Sunday.

Israel’s assault on Gaza, which began on Friday, has left 44 Palestinians dead, including 15 children, and injured hundreds more.

In Israel, three people were lightly wounded by the shrapnel of Palestinian rockets.

Twelve hours in, the ceasefire appeared to holding, as residents of the besieged Palestinian enclave began to clear rubble and continued to mourn the dead.
