A 72-hour truce agreed by Israel and Gaza militants started Friday at 0500 GMT, with diplomats hoping it will pave the way for a longer-term halt to hostilities.
AFP journalists in Gaza said that with the official beginning of the ceasefire the skies over Gaza fell silent, although in the preceeding two hours there was heavy Israeli fire and the sound of outgoing rockets.
