At 4:30am Israel and Palestine reached a ceasefire over the Gaza Strip, momentarily ending a weekend of horrific fighting.

The current ceasefire is bringing relief to civilians living in Gaza. It is a relief too for the the organisers, crews, and contestants of the Eurovision Song Contest, which is taking place in the city of Tel Aviv only 93km from Gaza.

So what does this ceasefire mean, and will the song contest be able to go on safely?
