Fmr. PLO negotiator: Border violence 'just might' threaten ceasefire, Palestinian factions need reconciliation

With the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza holding for a second straight day, the international community is beginning to debate what it means for the decades-old conflict. But violence erupted at the Israeli-Gaza border this morning, already disrupting the peace established less than 48-hours-ago. And with no long-term agreement yet in place between Israel and Hamas, the focus is on how long the delicate truce will last.

Diana Buttu is a Political Analyst with the Institute for Middle East Understanding and Former Legal Adviser with the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Buttu joins “Starting Point” live from the West Bank City of Ramallah with the latest in whether Gaza border violence could hurt the fragile cease-fire agreement.
