Celebratory gunfire erupted in Gaza Tuesday after a long-term truce agreed between Israel and the Palestinians went into effect at 1600 GMT, aimed at ending 50 days of bloodshed.
Thousands of Palestinians flooded on to the streets of Gaza City, including gunmen -- some from Hamas -- who fired in the air in celebration just moments after the truce began, AFP correspondents said.
Mosques used their loudspeakers to broadcast celebratory chants of "God is greatest" as the wartorn enclave hailed the apparent end to some of the worst Israeli-Palestinian violence in a decade.
