Dramatic video of Gaza market attack

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.

    this video is nothing..... I have friends in the UK, and other countries that are shown so much more.... so much violence against the people of Palestine. I'm not muslim, or jewish. I'm American... and I am sickened by the fact that our media does not report even half of what is happening there. Why is there so much filtering here? People need to know what our tax dollars are supporting.... these are not terrorists..... it is genocide

    Many of those criticizing Israel's bombardment of Gaza are apparently a little short on history lessons. During WWII American and British pilots dropped bombs on thousands of innocent German civilians. This was because Hitler refused to acknowledge that he could not win. The German High Command knew the war was lost even before D-Day, but in order to bring Germany to its knees thousands of innocent German women and children were sacrificed. The same thing is happening in Gaza simply because Hamas refuses to acknowledge Israel's right to exist. Hamas is using the deaths of women and children for propaganda purposes.
