Fuel trucks entered Gaza as an Egypt-brokered truce between the Israeli Occupation and Islamic Jihad was held Monday, AFP reported.

An AFP journalist at the goods crossing to southern Gaza saw trucks loaded with fuel enter the enclave, ending a severe shortage which had prompted the only power station there to shut down Saturday.

The arrival of vital supplies follows the start of a ceasefire at 11:30 pm (2030 GMT) Sunday to stem the worst fighting in Gaza since an 11-day war last year devastated the Palestinian coastal territory.

Gaza's health ministry said 15 children were among 44 people killed in three days of intense fighting.
