Israeli and Hamas officials have said a ceasefire will come into force tonight.
The ceasefire - which is being described as 'mutual and simultaneous' - is expected to start at 2am local time (11pm Irish time).
It follows 11 days of heavy fighting between Israel and militants in Gaza, during which hundreds of people have died.
Latest reports from the region suggest at least 232 Palestinians have been killed, along with 12 people in Israel.
Dozens of children are reported to be among those killed in Gaza.
Moves towards a ceasefire began earlier this week, when the Biden administration told Israeli officials they expected a 'deescalation' of the conflict.
Israel's security cabinet signed off on a ceasefire earlier today, local media reports, with Hamas officials telling news outlets they'd also agreed to stop the fighting.
Israeli airstrikes have seen several tower blocks in Gaza destroyed, including one that housed the local offices of several international media outlets.
