The United States has welcomed Israel's ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the limited truce announced afterwards by Hamas. Washington said it expected all parties to stop hostile actions immediately. Despite the unilateral ceasefire declared by Israel, Palestinian militants have continued to launch rockets. Israel says 18 struck without injury near the southern town of Sderot. Israeli warplanes replied by hitting a rocket launch site at Beit Hanun. Announcing the Israeli ceasefire early Sunday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said troops involved in Israel's three-week offensive would initially remain inside Gaza. Hamas has demanded a full pullout.
