After enduring weeks of displacement due to the ongoing aggression, the people of Gaza finally have a glimmer of hope as they start to return to their homes.
The four-day truce, which includes a complete ceasefire, went into effect this morning. Displaced Palestinians, who sought refuge in hospitals and schools during the aggression, are now gradually leaving their temporary shelters.
At exactly seven o’clock in the morning today, marking the forty-ninth day since the Zionist aggression against the Gaza Strip began, the first four-day humanitarian calm commenced.
As part of the truce, occupation aircraft completely withdrew from the southern Gaza Strip airspace, while their withdrawal from the north is scheduled from ten in the morning until four in the afternoon.

Additionally, Qatar’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Majed Al-Ansari, has announced the handover of the first batch of civilian hostages.
The truce was reached through mediation by Qatar, Egypt, and the United States.
It is noteworthy that the battles between the resistance factions and the occupation army continued even shortly before the truce entered into force on more than one axis and front in Gaza City, in Juhr al-Dik and the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, in addition to the axes of the Israeli army’s incursion into Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.
The number of martyrs during the aggression, which has been ongoing for 49 days, reached 14,854 martyrs, including more than 6,150 children and more than 4,000 women, while about 7,000 Palestinians are still missing, either under rubble or bodies thrown in the streets and roads or something. Their fate remains unknown, and the number of wounded exceeds 36,000.
