Differences remain between Hamas and its political rival Fatah, but both sides are agreed that the ceasefire is a “victory” for the Palestinians.
Hamas’s Gaza chief and prime minister has now urged all Palestinian militant groups to respect the accord.
“We have the great responsibility, as a government, to protect our people as well as this agreement in which the occupying state is committed.”
Gazans have been savouring the calm and celebrating what appears to be an end, for now, of relentless Israeli bombing.
In a rare show of unity, the rival green and yellow flags of Hamas and Fatah have been waved side by side.
After days of hiding to avoid being hit, thousands of people have taken to the streets in jubilation, although doubts still exist as to whether this is just a short pause in the fighting.
