Rumors of a ceasefire in the current conflict between Palestine and Israel have been circulating for days, but today they finally turned out to be true. As of 11 a.m. Pacific Time, all military actions have stopped, though bombing continued up to the last minute before the ceasefire.

As of this posting, the ceasefire appears to be holding. We’ll talk to people living in the region about what life has been like for the past week of fighting, and what their hopes are for the ceasefire.

Do you know anyone living in Palestine or Israel? What have you heard from them during this conflict?
