Fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza appears to have calmed after an unofficial truce was reached following days of violence.

Israel said a mortar shell landed in the south of the country today after no reports of exchanges fighting.

5 Israelis have been wounded since Tuesday amid some of the heaviest barrage of rocket and mortar fire from Gaza in months.

Schools were closed on both sides of the border for fear of more attacks, though some reopened in parts of southern Israel today.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to strike hard at the militants if attacks continued.
