A ceasefire has come into effect after two days of fighting between Israel and militants in Gaza, Egyptian and militant sources say.

The cross-border violence began after an Israeli air strike killed a commander from the militant group.

Israel has not confirmed the ceasefire.

Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry says 32 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire, while 63 people have been treated for injuries and stress symptoms in Israel.

A spokesman for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) told the BBC the ceasefire came into effect at 05:30 local time (03:30 GMT).

A senior Egyptian official told AFP news agency the ceasefire agreement came "as a result of Egypt's efforts".
