Islamic Jihad says agreed to ceasefire

Palestinian Islamic Jihad senior member Mohammad al-Hindi announced on Sunday that the group agreed to a ceasefire deal that Egypt had mediated.

Under the agreement, Cairo agreed to work on the release of Islamic Jihad members currently detained in Israel, including Bassem al-Saadi, whose arrest was one of the first incidents that eventually resulted in a serious escalation of hostilities. Despite reports of an imminent truce, the Israeli government has yet to officially confirm it.

Rocket alerts sound in towns across the region, according to local media.
