SHUJAYA, Gaza (CNN) - All is quiet, for now.

A scheduled 72-hour cease-fire between Israel and Hamas has held on Tuesday.

The Israeli Defense Forces said there was a barrage of rocket fire out of Gaza just before the truce went into effect at 8 a.m. local time, 1 a.m. Eastern.

Shujaya, one of the hard-hit areas in Gaza, remained quiet after the cease-fire went into effect.

The signs of destruction were obvious, as people walk amid the demolished buildings and mounds of rubble.
