GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip—Israel and the Hamas militant group agreed to a cease-fire Wednesday to end eight days of the fiercest fighting in nearly four years, promising to halt attacks on each other and ease an Israeli blockade constricting the Gaza Strip. Palestinian gunmen in Gaza fired into the air in celebration. At U.N. run schools in Gaza, where thousands had fled for protection, children and parents cheered and clapped. “I just hope they commit to peace,” said Abdel-Nasser al-Tom, from northern Gaza.
