Hundreds of Palestinians have spilled onto the streets of Gaza City to celebrate the announcement of a ceasefire which is being claimed as a victory by Hamas.
Drivers honked their horns and people walked through the streets cheering and waving Palestinian flags.
One reveller, named Mahmoud Saadeldeen, said: "It's an indescribable feeling ... we were holding on and waiting and thanks to God we won and the blood of our martyrs was not spilled in vain."
A number of immediate steps have been agreed, while more complex issues will be addressed in further talks set to begin within a month.
After the success of the Ice Bucket Challenge, the people of Gaza are using rubble and dirt instead of cold water to highlight their plight.
