A map of Gaza Strip. Gaza is the area of the most heated fighting during the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.
News emerged Wednesday that Israel and the extremist group Hamas have agreed to a truce in the Gaza Strip
to end eight days of fighting that has killed more than 140 Gaza residents and five Israelis.
It remains to be seen if a cease-fire can hold or if both sides plunge back into the on-and-off turmoil and warfare that has troubled the region for decades.
