Palestinians leave a United Nations-run school sheltering displaced Palestinians, as they make their way home after a ceasefire was declared, in Khan Younis in Gaza StripBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An open-ended ceasefire in the Gaza war held on Wednesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced strong criticism in Israel over a costly conflict with Palestinian militants in which no clear victor emerged. In Israel, sirens warning of incoming rocket fire from the Gaza Strip fell silent. "After 50 days of warfare in which a terror organization killed dozens of soldiers and civilians, destroyed the daily routine (and) placed the country in a state of economic distress ... we could have expected much more than an announcement of a ceasefire," analyst Shimon Shiffer wrote in Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel's biggest-selling newspaper. "We could have expected the prime minister to go to the president’s residence and inform him of his decision to resign his post." Netanyahu, who has faced constant sniping in his cabinet from right-wing ministers demanding military action to topple Hamas, scheduled a news conference for Wednesday evening, expected to be his first public remarks since the Egyptian-mediated truce deal took effect on Tuesday evening.

Peter Theo Curtis, 45, with his mother Nancy Curtis at Boston Logan International Airport after flying from Tel Aviv to Newark, New Jersey, August 26, 2014A US journalist taken hostage by Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria thanked those who supported him during his two years in captivity Wednesday, saying he was "just overwhelmed with emotion." Peter Theo Curtis, 45, made a brief statement to reporters outside his mother Nancy Curtis's house in Cambridge, Massachusets, the morning after his return home. The freelance journalist and author was released on Sunday, less than a week after grisly footage emerged of the execution of another US hostage, journalist James Foley, by the so-called Islamic State -- a separate group from the one that held Curtis. The group has also threatened to kill a second captive American journalist, Steven Sotloff, if US President Barack Obama did not change course.
