Israel and Hamas have agreed to an unconditional 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza from 05:00 GMT today.

A joint US and UN statement urged all parties to "act with restraint" until the ceasefire begins. Talks on a more permanent truce are to start in Cairo.

Since Israel began its offensive in Gaza on 8th July, 1,422 Palestinians have been killed.

Fifty-six Israeli soldiers have died.

Two Israeli civilians have been killed, as well as a Thai national in Israel.

Israel says its operation in Gaza is designed to defend its population from attacks by Palestinian militants.
