Following the airing of dramatic video footage of a deadly attack at a Gaza market, on Wednesday evening Erin Burnett welcomed colleague John Vause for an investigation of the dangerous situation.
In the footage, ambulances race to the scene after an initial explosion, only to be greeted by another. The journalist filming the scene was seriously injured in the explosion, but his assistant promptly picked up the camera, and continued rolling, capturing further scenes of horror. The footage, much of it graphic, has been broadcast on Hamas Television.
Hamas officials say the market may have been crowded largely because civilians were under the impression a humanitarian ceasefire was in place. With 17 killed and 200 wounded, they were clearly, and sadly, mistaken.
Watch the above video to see the full depth of footage from the fatal explosions at the market in Gaza.
