They're parachute flares. That's probably a really bad sign, because you would really only need those if ground troops are going in.

They seems to be moving to slow for rockets?

There's a lot of them and I'm hearing faint pops.

Parachute flares. They float down and have a long burn time so the troops on the ground have plenty of time to see. The pops are gunshots most likely from troops.

Illuminating...

Have we seen these used in the past week in Gaza?

Either they're flares to light the battlefield or fireworks celebrating a ceasefire.

I'm thinking the former, problably.

Flares. My guess would be for ground troops.

I personally haven't seen them used at all but I haven't been on 24/7 obviously.

You see a large burst as it hits the ground, perhaps a bunker buster? They are not benevolent. Just checking back in.

Thank you.

I was thinking flares (too many mistaken UFO videos for me!), but I am not familiar with military op, so I didn't want to speak out of turn.

There's a bunch of them too.

The flash is because they keep burning when they're on the ground. They're magnesium flares, so the only way to put them out is to either let them burn until the fuel is gone, or smother them and remove all the oxygen from around them.

This is insane! why would Israel do this right before a ceasefire? this is not good! Is it me or did suddenly most of the lights go out in Gaza? It seems the webcams stopped working. Is this an indication for a ground attack??WTF

I've just read this, however I'm not holding my breath

Did they move the camera or did the city just go black?

Also, twitter is giving me 'fail whale', so I'm really concerned about what's happening.

If there are parachute flares, and troops on the ground, I doubt there's going to be a cease fire. There was only a few hours left, and I don't think they can do a lot in just a few hours.
