Early Friday morning, a vulnerable cease-fire was held between Hamas and Israel that threw an anxious peace to Israel and Gaza. Multiple groups containing thousands of inhabitants went to the Gaza streets after a cease-fire placed held at 02:00 am according to local time. Moreover, people of the region waved Hamas and Palestinian flags, honked horns, passed out sweets, and conducted fireworks. Also, spontaneous merriments began in east Jerusalem and even across the occupied West Bank.
On the starting hours of Friday morning, there was a confused response from the people in Sderot (the Southern Israeli city). Some residents slammed the country’s government for this abrupt action. On the other side, those that were interested in peace admired the move as crucial and positive.
The local health officials and authorities said that the number of deaths at the eleven-day war is 230 in the Gaza region, including sixty-five innocent children and twelve in Israel.
The UN (United Nations) explained that above seventy-two thousand Palestinians have been displaced in Gaza.

Since 10 may, Hamas has launched rockets at many cities of Israel from Gaza, which it called were rights abuses done by the government of Israel against Palestinians living in Jerusalem.
The country, Israel, responded with airstrikes and weaponry on Hamas leaders and its infrastructure. Furthermore, the Israeli dealt with international blame for destroying buildings and hitting refugee camps and many other targets, which created a large number of civilian deaths.
President Joe Biden described that they held intensive high-level negotiations, hour by hour, literally. Biden added that he had talked with the Israeli Prime Minister six times in the previous eleven-day phase as part of diplomatic struggles of his administration behind the scene to accomplish a stable condition in the conflicts.
