I really hope those civilians get out of there. See some journalists too. If they hit that spot again they are all dead

The IAI Heron, and the Elbit Hermes 450 are the two that are most in use by the IAF. Both are MALE (Medium Altitude Lone Endurance) type UAVs. Most likely what you are hearing is the Heron, as it has a much longer endurance, and is capable of a higher altitude where it can stay out of range of everything but a dedicated AAA gun, or a missile.

The Heron is capable of 45 hours of flight, at altitudes near 30,000 feet or higher. It's fairly short ranged, but in this case, that's not a problem, since they're staying close to home. It's mostly used for reconnaissance missions over land, and maritime situations.

The Hermes 450 is a popular export model, that is even used in the US. It's capable of about 20 hours of flight, at an altitude up to 18,000 feet. The Hermes is more for SIGINT, ISTAR, and comm relays than it is for a tactical situation.

That could be it. Although it's pretty deep.

On RT, I'm seeing a lot of people bringing out wounded. All those buildings around there have "black holes" where window glass used to be. Anyone inside those rooms would be peppered with it and have overpressure injuries due to the concussion. You can see them bringing people out to ambulances all around there.

Edit: You can hear someone sweeping up the glass.

I'm only hearing the UAV, although that sounds like more than one. That's a twin engine aircraft. The IAF uses a number of Beech King Air C-12 aircraft for ISR, and other forms of reconnaissance. It's perfect for use over Gaza, because it can stay out of range of small arms/RPGs, and is fast and maneuverable enough to dodge some SAMs. That definitely sounded like a multi-engine though.

I think i may have found where that last strike was.

31.513325, 34.450250

There's no building information on the map but that gives us a good location for the RT camera.
