Death toll rises to 41 as violence rocks Gaza

The death toll from violence in Gaza has risen to 41 on Sunday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said.

Israel launched a military operation on Friday which it says targets Islamic Jihad positions.

The campaign is the biggest flare-up between Israel and Gaza since an 11-day conflict in May 2021 left more than 200 Palestinians and a dozen Israelis dead.

Reuters reported that Israel and Palestinian militants had agreed to a truce in Gaza from Sunday evening as mediated by Cairo.
