Tens of thousands of children have returned to school in Gaza, the Palestinian territory, for the first time after a ceasfire agreement was reached between Israel and Hamas, the group that governs Gaza.

The Egyptian-brokered truce ended eight days of cross-border fighting that claimed 166 Palestinian and six Israeli lives, according to health officials.

Gaza residents also say that Israel has eased some border restrictions as part of the ceasefire, allowing farmers to visit land near its security fence and letting fishermen head further out to sea.
