Palestinians celebrate news of the cease-fire agreement Wednesday in Gaza City that calls for Israel and Hamas to stop all hostilities, but details of how the plan will be enforced remained unclear.

Israel and the Hamas militant group agreed to a cease-fire Wednesday to end eight days of the fiercest fighting in nearly four years, promising to halt airstrikes and rocket attacks that have killed scores and to discuss easing an Israeli blockade constricting the Gaza Strip.
