Gaza residents cleared rubble and claimed victory on Thursday, just hours after an Egyptian-brokered truce between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers ended the worst cross-border fighting in four years.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas swore in an emergency Cabinet free of Hamas members yesterday, prompting an immediate promise that the new government will have the "full support" of the U.S. government.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said that "the Israeli people will pay the price" for the killing of civilians.
