Israel and Gaza's armed groups agreed a ceasefire on Saturday to end a sharp surge in cross-border violence, a Palestinian official said.

"Egyptian and international efforts succeeded in ending the current round of escalation," the Palestinian official, who is familiar with the talks, told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not respond to a request for comment.
