After eight days of fighting between Israel and Gaza, a cease-fire established Wednesday appears to be holding. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy played a central role in the talks for a truce with Israel, and emerged as a major leader in the Middle East. The agreement, meanwhile, also demonstrates the diminishing role of the Palestinian Authority and the rise of Hamas.
But this morning, new violence erupted after reports Israeli troops opened fire in a buffer zone with Gaza, killing at least one Palestinian and wounding 19, Hamas security and health officials said.
Will the latest violence threaten the fragile cease-fire?
