    Israeli and Palestinian fighters have agreed to a ceasefire after airstrikes and rocket fire between the two sides killed several people.

    It started with an Israeli attack in Rafah city on Saturday afternoon, which Israel said was in response to rocket attacks launched from Gaza earlier in the week.

    Egyptian officials helped to secure the renewed truce. But it remains to be seen whether all sides will abide by it.
