Wolf Blitzer anchors from Jerusalem

(CNN) - As the violence continues in Israel and Gaza, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is reporting on the conflict from Jerusalem, where he will anchor “The Situation Room” this week.

Tune in Monday at 4pm ET for Blitzer’s report from Ashkelon, Israel, a town just north of the Gaza border which has been repeatedly targeted by rocket attacks from Hamas militants in recent days.

Blitzer described Ashkelon as “eerie” as the cafés and beaches are deserted. As soon as he arrived, there was a series of loud booms, air raid sirens went off and soldiers rushed Blitzer and others to a bomb shelter.

Blitzer is also interviewing former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman Avital Leibovich and Israeli Government spokesman Mark Regev from Jerusalem.

Also in today’s show, Frederik Pleitgen and Christiane Amanpour report from Israel, and Anderson Cooper, Arwa Damon and Ben Wedeman report from Gaza City.
