As the conflict in the Gaza Strip and Israel moves into its third week, the impact of the fighting on Palestinian and Israeli children has become a heart-breaking signature of the conflict. Reports from Gaza relay stories of shells destroying civilian homes, killing children sheltering within; of tank-fire killing a five month-old baby; of a naval bombardment on a beach killing four young boys who had been kicking around a soccer ball. In Israel, parents hear the first wail of air raid sirens, grab their frightened children and run for bomb shelters.
