I just counted.

Booms are just over 3 miles off. Deff Mortar rounds. 105s + have a deeper more drawn out sound. Anything Crisp, assume 80mm HE or below.

I figured they were sitting in white plastic chairs drinking coke watching explosions.


And let's not forget eating confused, fried (rooster) chicken.

So no ceasefire as of yet and a potential ground invasion which is the bad move israel could take. Just seen a big explosion on the right top side of camera. Jesus Heck !!!

The IDF targeted an Islamic Jihad site in #Gaza. Yunis Shaluf, who was responsible for rocket fire on Eilat several months ago, was killed

Or was it a flare I'm not sure it looked a bit like a lighting strike but orange in colour.

Forgive my ignorance but could those flares be white phosphorus flares?

They're magnesium illumination flares. There might have been one or two WP mixed in, but I haven't seen them "explode" the way a WP flare would.

Flares are dropped by aircraft to mark (paint) a target for naval guns
so if your near one...move
knowing they can airstrike at will ,it's like there live fire practicing on Gaza

They can. The Hermes has thermal imaging cameras that can easily be used to illuminate the area.

Naw, that was a shell. The shell puts off an audible humming, metallic sound, or whistling sound. Depending on who you ask.

-----

What you just heard just then was a missile.

If you just heard something that sounded like a really loud wind just then, that was a missile.

What in gods name was that? It almost sounded like a slow firing MLRS firing two or three times. Too many to count in a very short period of time.
