The Palestinian armed group Islamic Jihad says a ceasefire has been agreed with Israel in Gaza, after two days of cross-border fighting.
Egypt has been mediating between the two sides.
The two sides fired more rockets and missiles in the early hours of Thursday as negotiations were taking place.
Thirty-two Palestinians have been killed.
The escalation began after a senior leader of Islamic Jihad was killed in an Israeli air raid.
