After 11 days of fighting, Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas have agreed to a ceasefire.

At least 243 people, including more than 100 women and children, were killed in Gaza, according to its health ministry. Israel has said it killed at least 225 militants during the fighting. Hamas has not given casualty figures for fighters.

In Israel 12 people, including two children, were killed, its medical service says.

The Israeli military says more than 4,300 rockets were fired towards its territory by militants through the conflict, and that it struck more than 1,000 militant targets in Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the country had gone to „extreme“ lengths to avoid civilian casualties in Gaza, taking steps that no other country in the world had done.

At a news conference on Friday Mr Netanyahu said that his country had „exacted a heavy price from Hamas“.

„Not everything is known to the public yet, nor to Hamas, but the full range of achievements will be revealed over time,“ he said.

Top Hamas political leader Ismail Haniya, meanwhile, said the recent fighting „defeated the illusions of negotiations“, describing resistance as the „best strategic choice for liberation“.

„We, as a movement and movement’s leadership, with all our people and the good people of this nation and the world, will rebuild Gaza,“ he added.

Presidents and prime ministers worldwide have welcomed the ceasefire, brokered by Egypt.

While some laid blame on one side or the other, leaders overwhelmingly called for a lasting political solution to the conflict.
