Islamic Jihad, which has taken responsibility for the majority of some 39 rockets fired at Israel from the Strip in the past 24 hours, said late Sunday morning that it had agreed to an Egyptian-brokered cease fire in the Gaza Strip.

The terror organization said, however, that it reserves the right to respond to any Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported.

One Israeli man was killed by a rocket Saturday night. In response, the IDF struck six terror sites in Gaza overnight, killing nine Palestinian terrorists.
