GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed by stray gunfire as crowds
hit the streets of the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night to celebrate a
ceasefire deal which ended eight days of deadly fighting.

After being stuck at home for days for fear of Israeli airstrikes, tens of
thousands of Palestinians crowded into cars and doubled up on motorcycles,
waving flags, and some opened fire into the sky as a sign of celebration.

Spokesman of Gaza's health ministry, Ashraf al-Qidra, said a man was killed
by gunfire and three others wounded. He appealed to citizens not to shoot
into the air.

The Egyptian-brokered ceasefire put an end to Israeli air raids which bombed
hundreds of Hamas targets and the firing of more than 2,000 rockets and
mortar bombs by Hamas and other factions into Israeli cities, including Tel
Aviv and Jerusalem.

In all, at least 170 Palestinians, including more than 30 children and at
least 10 women, were killed in the offensive, along with four Israeli
civilians and a soldier.
