Palestinians, Israelis cautious about truce

As Israeli ground troops withdraw from the Gaza border, Israelis and Palestinians expressed mixed feelings about the ceasefire.

The ceasefire was brokered after eight days of conflict that killed five Israelis and 162 Gazans, including 37 children.

In Gaza, the truce was celebrated as a success, with this newspaper headline reading "Gaza is victorious".

Palestinians here said they were proud of the resistance to the Israeli bombardment.

Israelis though were more sceptical about the ceasefire.

One resident of Sderot said the truce would not last.
