Israeli and Palestinian fighting stopped on Wednesday after Egypt was said to have brokered a ceasefire between the two nations.

This week saw the neighboring countries launch a series of high powered attacks across each other's borders in the most heated exchange since the war of 2014.

Militants from Hamas, the dominant group in Gaza, and Islamic Jihad fired dozens of rockets and mortar bombs at Israel throughout Tuesday and overnight, to which Israel responded with tank and air strikes on more than 50 targets in the enclave.

There were no reports of further fighting after Palestinian and Israeli attacks in the early hours of Wednesday, and both sides appeared to back away from a slide towards a new war after weeks of violence along the border.
