The residents of the Shejaiya neighborhood had all but emptied their neighborhood to stay with friends or with family elsewhere as they fled the fighting between Israel and Hamas militants. The skies over Gaza remained calm as a long-term ceasefire took hold, ending the deadliest violence in a decade with Israel and Hamas both claiming 'victory' in the 50-day war.
