The ceasefire comes after three days of violence, bombings and rocket attacks. Egypt is said to have helped negotiate the agreement.
It was uncertain for a while whether the agreement would be upheld, when there were reports of new attacks and air raid sirens went off.
But around midnight Norwegian time it quieted down, and early Monday it still appears that the ceasefire is being held, writes AFP.
Palestinians in Gaza celebrated the cease-fire last night. According to The Times of Israel, they are hailing the slain leaders of Islamic Jihad as martyrs and shouting anti-Semitic slogans.
