SHOW TRANSCRIPT

A severe round of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza has ended with a cease-fire.

Egypt brokered the deal between Israel and Palestinian groups, including Hamas.

Hundreds of rockets were fired during a wave of fighting in the days leading up to the agreement. At least eight people were killed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office didn't confirm the cease-fire, but CNN notes that's typical of how his office has responded to previous deals.
