Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have collapsed after nine months of faltering negotiations.

The US-backed talks were meant to end decades of conflict with a final settlement. Instead each side accused the other breaking agreements and traded blame for the failure of the talks.

It marks the end of the most intensive effort in years to bring peace and the future of the process is now uncertain.

Join BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen for a live Twitter chat today.

Jeremy will take your questions about why the talks broke down, what is happening now and what are the options for the two sides.

He will answer your questions directly from his Twitter account @BowenBBC today between 13:00 - 14:00 GMT.

Here is how you can take part:

Questions may be edited for brevity.
