CNN’s Jake Tapper Speaks to WSJ Reporter in Gaza on Strike that Left 4 Children Dead

On this afternoon’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” the CNN host spoke over the phone with The Wall Street Journal’s Middle East correspondent Nick Casey for what proved to be a very intense interview.

Casey was located near where a recent strike took place in Gaza that left several dead, including four children.

“Their names were Ismail, Mohammed, Zw-Karia, and Ahed,” Tapper said during the program. “They were 8 years old, 10, 10, and 11. One moment they were playing soccer on a beach. The next, they were dead. Forget for a moment what you think of Hamas or the Netanyahu government. Forget the questions you have about the tactics or the prospects of peace. Just think for one second about four little boys going to the beach to play soccer and being killed. Killed by the Israeli Military…And while you’re thinking of these Palestinian boys, maybe also take a moment to think about the Israeli children killed by Palestinian terrorists in this conflict. Say for instance, the kidnapped three teenage boys, one of them with American citizenship. Is there room in your heart for all seven of these boys, Jewish and Palestinian alike?”
