Gaza children caught in the crossfire

As violence escalates in the Strip, families say minors should be left out of the fighting.


    Like other civilians in Gaza, children are bearing the brunt of the latest flare up in violence between Hamas and Israel.

    Families urge that minors be spared from the crossfire, but with both sides refusing to back down, the prospects of a ceasefire seem unlikely.

    In three days of fighting, 18 Palestinians have been killed and dozens injured, while two Israelis have been wounded.
