In Gaza, news of the ceasefire deal was greeted by celebrations but just before the truce went into effect, there were more rockets fired into southern Israel.
And there were more Israeli strikes hitting targets in Gaza. The building housing the Gaza office of the French news agency AFP was hit by two strikes.
No one in the office was hurt, but a child was reported killed in a nearby building.
