Israeli President Shimon Peres speaks exclusively to CNN's Becky Anderson

Israel’s President Shimon Peres says his country has warned Gaza’s militants to stop firing rockets at Israel.

“We didn’t start the war today, they started it already several days ago,” Peres said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Becky Anderson (@beckycnn). “We warned them, we asked them to stop it…we waited one day, two days, three days and they continued, and they spread their fire on more areas in Israel.”

He also said that a ground offensive on Gaza “may happen quite soon.” Referring to rockets being fired from Gaza, Peres said “if they will stop for example tonight, there won’t be any ground entrance – but if they will continue, sooner or later this will be the response.”

Amanpour Exclusive: Brazil President Dilma Rousseff on World Cup – "my nightmares never got so bad"

Never in her worst nightmares did Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff imagine such a crushing soccer defeat, she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.

"My nightmares never got so bad, Christiane," she said through an interpreter. "They never went that far. As a supporter, of course, I am deeply sorry because I share the same sorrow of all supporters. But I also know that we are a country that has one very peculiar feature. We rise to the challenge of adversity."

Brazil, she said, will recover from this "extremely painful situation." She added "Being able to overcome defeat I think is the feature and hallmark of a major national team and of a great country."
