Speaking movingly about his visit to Shifa Hospital, which has two floors dedicated to the care of children, Mr Snow said:

“I can’t get those images out of my mind.
“They are the essence of what is happening in Gaza.”
Mr Snow did remind his audience that many of the Israeli soldiers fighting are in their twenties, and said that since the conflict began 19 days ago, 1,310 children in Gaza have been wounded, and 166 are dead.
