JOHANNESBURG/GAZA - A three-day ceasefire between Israel and Hamas appears to be holding as Israel withdrew ground forces from the Gaza Strip on Tuesday and started a 72-hour ceasefire with Hamas mediated by Egypt as a first step towards negotiations on a more enduring end to the month-old war.
Some of the 440,000 Palestinians displaced by the fighting were able to make the trek from United Nations run shelters back home to assess the damage.
