How Gazans Reacted to Israel-Hamas Ceasefire

The ceasefire comes amid an exchange of rocket fire between Hamas and the IDF that lasted for more than a week. Since the violence erupted, 12 Israelis have lost their lives, with 50 others seriously wounded. Palestinian casualties currently stand at 227 killed, including 64 children.

On 20 May, Benjamin Netanyahu's Security Cabinet unanimously adopted an Egyptian initiative for an unconditional bilateral ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, thus paving the way to end 11 days of military hostilities between the parties. Following the news, people in the Gaza Strip flocked to the streets to celebrate the ceasefire, launching fireworks, honking car horns, and marching through cities.

A new round of military hostilities started on 10 May, after Hamas launched hundreds of rockets towards Israel forcing the Israeli Defence Forces to respond with retaliatory strikes.

Violent clashes broke out earlier in May between Palestinians and the Israeli police, leading to the worst conflict in recent years. Riots began in two areas of East Jerusalem at once — near the Temple Mount and in the Sheikh Jarrah quarter, where several Arab families were evicted by an Israeli court order.
