Israel has confirmed it has agreed to a six-month truce with Palestinian armed groups including Hamas, the country's public radio service has reported.

Ehud Olmert, Israel's prime minister and Ehud Barak, defence minister, approved the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire a day after Egyptian and Palestinian officials announced a deal.

The Palestinian territory's been the scene of deadly clashes with the Israeli army since a Hamas takeover last year.

Egypt, which has worked for months to broker the deal, is urging both sides to do everything they can to make the peace last.

Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Gaza on the Egyptian-brokered peace deal.
