An agreement is in place for a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants.  Egyptian state media says the truce calls for an indefinite end to hostilities and the immediate opening of Gaza's crossings with Israel and Egypt. 

That move will allow humanitarian aid and reconstruction materials to flow into the Palestinian enclave.  The truce puts and end to seven weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas.
