After two days of escalating violence in the Gaza Strip, a ceasefire came into effect early on Thursday.

Israel unleashed an air campaign against Gaza after it assassinated senior Islamic Jihad commander Bahaa Abu al-Atta and his wife on Tuesday morning.

At least 34 Palestinians have been killed during Israel's assault and more than 100 injured.

The Palestinian ministry of health said on Thursday morning that the dead included eight Palestinians from the same family who had been killed in their home by an Israeli air strike.
