They were setting off fireworks last night Gaza time. There was also a lot of gunfire. It could be any number of things. Even the exhaust from a cars which is something we aren't used to seeing on these feeds.

Bibi is speaking on the Reuters Live Stream atm, unfortunately no idea what he is saying because it's in Hebrew.

ETA:


Hamas' military wing claims that throughout Operation Pillar of Defense, 12 long-range rockets were fired at Israel, six Fajr missiles and six M-75 missiles, which are manufactured in the Gaza Strip.

A spokesperson for the Islamic Jihad said his organization fired 600 rockets at Israel in the last week, and that it intends to continue arming itself with rockets and firing them at Israel



Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Benny Gantz, in a statement in wake of cease-fire deal: "We decided to stop the operation after eight days. It is still too early to tell what will happen in the coming months. If nothing comes out of Gaza, it will remain quiet."

Gantz said each and every one of the operation's objectives were achieved, including severe damage to Hamas' military leadership, alongside what he described as "a lethal blow to Hamas' strategic capabilities." Gantz implied that the army is focusing on what is being done in Iran and Libya, since these are the main sources of weapons-supply to the Gaza Strip - evident from the unmanned aerial vehicles that were destroyed, as well as the Fajr rockets and anti-tank missiles.

Islamic Jihad isn't Hamas (is it?) so it'll be interesting to see what happens if they do.
