Palestine Live Coverage: Updates from the West Bank and Gaza
An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire between Israel and Hamas appeared to be holding on Saturday, as the truce entered its second day. Despite the agreement, Israeli police on Friday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in Jerusalem with tear gas and stun grenades, raising fears over the fragile truce.
According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the Israeli onslaught led to 248 deaths in Gaza, including 66 children, with the Palestinian ministry of health reporting 27 deaths in the West Bank. Twelve Israelis were killed by Hamas rocket fire into Israel.
More than 6,000 Palestinians were injured in both the West Bank and Gaza. According to the UN, some 90,000 Palestinians were displaced by Israel's 11-day bombardment of the blockaded coastal enclave.
As focus shifts towards Gaza's reconstruction and ensuring that the ceasefire holds, The New Arab brings you live coverage and updates throughout the day.

As the Israel-Hamas truce holds through its second day, here's a closer look at the negotiations that took place behind the scenes as Israel carried out its brutal 11-day bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Egypt Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has spoken with his Israeli counterpart, Gabi Ashkenazi, about stabilising the Cairo-brokered Gaza cease-fire deal.
A statement by Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said the two diplomats on Friday discussed shoring up the deal, which has mostly brought a halt to fighting between Israel and the Palestinians. They hope that will facilitate the reconstruction of Gaza.
The statement said the ministers also agreed on the importance of coordination between the two nations, the Palestinian Authority and international partners on securing communication channels to achieve peace. It did not provide further details.
Egypt, which mediated the halt to the fighting with U.S. support, sent a delegation to Israel at around noon on Friday to discuss ways of firming up the ceasefire, including with aid for Palestinians in Gaza, Hamas officials told Reuters.
The delegates have since been shuttling between Israel and Gaza, with talks continuing on Saturday, the officials said.
