Children in Gaza have no way to escape violence

This report contains images of violence that may be difficult for some viewers

Israeli airstrikes have killed more than 650 Palestinians and wounded nearly 4,000. All too often, it is the youngest residents of Gaza who are caught in the middle of this violence. Ben Wedeman reports on the crisis.

    Ben Wedeman shakes the hand of the palestinian civilian who says, it doesn't matter where we'll die – here or there, it's more honorable to die at home. CNN encourages Palestinian civilians to put there kids at risk. It's the press, media, especially anti-semitic correspondence. Anderson Cooper, I am really really really disappointed to see this kind of reports on your blog. I always thought of you as of unbiased and independent journalist. You show only one side of the story. What about almost 3000 rockets headed to Israel – should they just wait to die and do nothing. FIRE Ben Wedeman – he's anti-semitic and anti-Israeli journalist who doesn't deserve to be appointed in your blog.

      Ben Wedeman has always been a balanced journalist. Obviously, you are biased. Children of any group should not be killed. It is sad for the children. The proportion of Palestinian deaths is 300 to 1. How can you condone the deaths of the children?

    Hello, my name is Semahagne . I lived in Russia for about 4 years, I speak , read and write Russian but I was born in Ethiopia. More or less I know how Russian mind works. When Russians took over Crimea at the begging they denied every thing before the wold. After they took control Crimea , immediately they admitted that every thing was done by their army and Putine was in it from planing to execution of the take over.
    My question to CNN is why are you calling Russian invaders as the Danske republic or Easter Ukraine sparatist etc...? To me there is no sparatist in eastern Ukrian, the only army I see in eastern Ukirean is the Russian army or are you waiting till Putine admite the Invision of Eastern Ukriean by Russians army one more time?

      Point number 1, no cease-fire was broken the cease fire is over based on the agreement they had struck Tuesday. I believe it was a 72 hour cease fire, so how was it broken ? Can anybody there add, subtract, or divide?

    Those children just grow up to what they see. A circle of violence.
