Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian group behind most of the rockets fired at Israel, is ready to respect a truce if Israel ends its "aggressions," a spokesman told AFP.

"We accept a ceasefire if Israel agrees to apply it by ending its aggressions and assassinations," Daud Shehab said after Egypt announced it had brokered a "comprehensive and mutual" truce between Israel and Gaza militants, after four days of violence that left 25 Palestinians dead.
