A ceasefire came into effect yesterday in and around Gaza after a week of cross-border violence between Israel and Palestinian militants that killed at least 160 people.

Gaza City's streets were dark and deserted in the minutes after the ceasefire began and Israeli drones could be heard overhead, but soon after people poured out onto the streets to hail the "victory."

Heavy triumphant gunfire could be heard throughout the Gaza Strip, and residents also released fireworks into the night sky, where Israeli drones could still be heard buzzing overhead.
