Hundreds of people gathered a the Asper Jewish Community Campus in Winnipeg for a rally in support of Israel in its conflict with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Last week a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel went into effect and as of Sunday it still holds.

If the truce lasts it's expected the crossing between Israel and Gaza may re-open, allowing for the movement of people and goods.

People at the rally told CBC News they hope to see peace in the region sometime during their lifetime.
