‘Time-Lapse’ Condenses 1 Hour of Air Strikes into 1 Minute, Shows Gaza Neighborhood Leveled

The video above isn’t a time-lapse per-se, but it is being reported as such because it allegedly condense a full hour of Israeli Army air strikes on a Gaza Neighborhood down to just one minute of footage. In that minute, you see an entire neighborhood vanish into explosions and massive clouds of dust that clear to reveal only piles of rubble.

The video was tweeted by BuzzFeed correspondent Sheera Frenkel, and it’s important to note that the info in her tweet has not been confirmed by anyone other than Al Arabia News, so details are vague and uncertain, but it’s a horrifying ‘time-lapse’ that reminds us of the GoPro video from the front of Syrian tank we shared several months ago.

This is a screenshot of the before and after at the end:

Photographs of the kind of destruction the conflict has been wreaking in Gaza can be seen in the Washington Post here.

    Are you still on about that?

  • rickyheartsbokeh

    You can’t fire on a nation with an amazing military and not expect them to fire back. Who shot first. Who keeps breaking ceasefire. Who is hiding behind there civilians. The reason people aren’t dying in Israel is because Israels government spends there money on defending their citizens (iron dome defense system) and Hamas spends there money trying to kill Israeli citizens (tunnel system). Facts are facts, don’t let mainstream media pollute your brain.

    I see a lot of negativity on these comments that seem to defend Hamas. Let me make this hit home a little more:

    Scenario 1:
    If Mexico started lobbing rockets into El Paso, Texas and Texas said “stop it or we’ll retaliate”. Then gave ultimatums and then responded with a similar attack to what you just saw, would you then think this war is a shame? I bet most would wonder why we even bothered to give ultimatums. Now imagine for a moment if they (let’s say the drug cartels) put women and children right where we would be attacking in Mexico, would we have no right to retaliate to stop the bombardment on our own city?

    Most seem to be saying that we would not…which is BS. Japan bombed us and we retaliated (I’m not talking about the A-Bomb either, i’m talking regular bombs). Was that different? Would you rather the US have continued to not join the war?

    On the Israeli side
    Scenario 2:
    Some argue that Israel doesn’t have the right to take the land they took. Do the American Indians have every right to take the land back the white man took if they were able to make a resistance to do so? If you don’t think so then you are two-faced here…

    Israel is in the right here. War is ugly but this one is not wrong. Hamas is dangerous and is so religiously extreme that they would lob newborns at their enemies if it meant they could win. Do you really want to defend them?

    Last argument that some may have: Hamas is the enemy but what about the innocent that are not Hamas that are still dying? Israel has offered to let them in and protect them yet they have not gone. They will have to take the chance of dying under Hamas or dying because Hamas is using them as human shields. It is extremely unfortunate but that is war.

    Israel just bombed another UN refugee center, a playground, and a market. All this just one hour after the start of a 6 hour ceasefire that israel unilaterally called for and agreed to!

    Out of all the killing on both sides I see the Palestinians have killed mostly soldiers. 50+ soldiers and 3 civilians. Now what are those numbers on the other side. Israel with its most advanced weapons systems and intelligence has killed mostly civilians. Why? Because that is who they target. 3/53rds verses 900/1200 civilians killed . Looks to me that the palis have a better moral system that targets the military more so than the civilian population.

  • Barbado Slim Cuh

    awesome, level all of gaza to rid those HAMAS pigs from that area

  • Barbado Slim Cuh

    your so ignorant. typical liberal mushmind always supporting the “underdog”

  • Alex

    I’m way more familiar with Masada than you’ll ever be, and this is still barely an argument, since we didn’t go kill roman children to spite them, and it’s still preferable to what was going to happen to them anyways-torture and murder that you’re so fond of.

    Seriously, best you can come up with? this isn’t even fun anymore, it’s just…sad

  • Alex

    i wish you’d go have an israeli accident already.

  • Alex

    You know Stan, I had a day to cool off, think this over, and look at everything you said. I had a change of heart, and made some decisions.

    For every time you spoke in a public forum advocating the killing of Jews while praising a terrorist organization, I decided to buy $100 in Israeli bonds, and make a $10 donation to Magen David Adom or ZAKA to help in the fight for Israel, and help the victims of the war crimes you love so much. Oh, and to do it under your username.

    Thanks for helping me, and the people of Israel in the fight against terrorism worldwide. It ended up being expensive, but worthwhile investment.

  • Toby Hawkins

    As an impartial observer, here’s a radical idea: Both sides are wrong!

    Hamas don’t care about the deaths of their own population and use schools and hospitals to house rockets. This is fact. They may even want the deaths for publicity. In the current conflict (not opening the Pandora’s box of who started what historically) Hamas is also constantly provoking Israel, knowing that it will just lead to more civilian deaths with nothing gained by them.

    Israel, knowing this, still shell’s schools and hospitals they believe to house militants, despite Hamas posing very little threat thanks to Israel’s iron dome missile defence system. This too, is fact. It seems Israel doesn’t care about the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians (including children) if those deaths are Palestinian.

  • Kiltedbear

    How is pointing out that the op is the equivalent of saying that the sky is blue trolling? I have never been accused of trolling before and I am baffled that pointing out that a statement is obvious is somehow trolling. If I actually wanted to troll, I would come on a lot harder than that because it was a pretty weak trolling if you think so.

    An Italian journaliste said that after leaving Gaza. I might find you a link but your mind is already set it seems

  • http://avivitzhaky.wordpress.com/ Aviv Itzhaky

    The Arab nations didn’t recognize the UN partition and started war, lost it and lost territories. They tried again in 1967 and lost again, that’s not stealing. You wanted war, you’ve got it.

  • http://avivitzhaky.wordpress.com/ Aviv Itzhaky

    Do you know what Genocide is? It’s wiping out a nation! Arabs in Gaza keep multiplying quickly!

  • EMKOEMKO

    those people who emigrated from europe have no say and can not be able to take land that belongs to the people who for generations where living there even worse most palistine people are jewsish and christian descendants how stayed and converted to islam. Whats worse is they clame the land theirs as there right to return to some fantasy land while blocking the palistine people from returning since 1964 i think its like almost 2 million people who cant return because isreal says so even though its illegal to do that.

  • EMKOEMKO

    i have seen isreali soldiers using palestinian kids at as human shields at gun point to clear houses just horrible.

  • EMKOEMKO

    i would be glad if the european jews returned to there countries in europe/russia or lived with palestinian people under a non jewish state. There is nothing wrong with jewish people though there are some that i don’t like but most in North america that i met are nice. Do you know jewish and christians lived there fine before europeans came and decided they own the land and kicked out the people causing there to be like 2million refuges that ISreal refuses to let them return something that is illegal everyone has the right of return.

  • EMKOEMKO

    i am wondering why they didn’t remove the churches and sinigogs in jeruselum while arabs where in control of that area? are palestine people just jews and christians who converted to islam? i see that one family for over 1000 years where in charge of that one church weird i thought muslims killed infedals and wants jews exterminated.

  • EMKOEMKO

    isreali soldiers use palestinian kids as human shields at gun point to clear houses horrible.

    According to the report, the IDF has, on a number of occasions, violated the High Court of Justice ruling against the use of the ‘neighbor procedure,’ whereby neighbors of wanted Palestinians are forced to go into the wanted man’s house ahead of troops, in case it is booby-trapped.

  • http://avivitzhaky.wordpress.com/ Aviv Itzhaky

    You don’t know the history of these peoples. Most of Arabs came here in 1920-1940 because the country was flourishing by work of Jews, there are testimonys that before it was alost an empty land. And these Arabs came from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia- they say it themselves, there was NEVER a palestinyan people!.

  • Chang

    No, they don’t. Stop making things up.

  • Chang

    No, they don’t. Stop making things up to justify your anti-Semitism. Also try spelling correctly and capitalizing correctly, or no one will take you seriously.

  • EMKOEMKO

    Yes they do don’t be idiot there is even a damn video of them doing it, also look up “neighbor procedure” many documented case of this –

    According to the report, the IDF has, on a number of occasions, violated the High Court of Justice ruling against the use of the ‘neighbor procedure,’ whereby neighbors of wanted Palestinians are forced to go into the wanted man’s house ahead of troops, in case it is booby-trapped.

    The human rights organization says that international humanitarian law obliges the army to remove citizens from areas of conflict and to protect them from danger during army operations. “Even if there was no apparent danger to the Palestinian who was used as a ‘human shield,’ the method is completely illegal,” the group says.

  • EMKOEMKO

    just NO most of them have been living there for generations, look at there DNA its decendent from Jewish and Christians they think they converted to islam a long time ago while others left. To claim that they came in 1920 is idiotic as most of them are born there and have family that has lived there for generations same with jews and christians that where living there before the europeans started to immigrate and then decide to claim the land there’s i do understand the reason they want there own place but this is just not the way to do it.

  • Chang

    Again, chill with the anti-Semitism. Israel’s own Supreme Court decided in 2005 that the “neighbor procedure” was illegal under international and Israeli law, and then in 2010 convicted two IDF soldiers for using it and sentenced them to prison. The IDF doesn’t use that “procedure” as its policy, and sends people to jail for doing so.

    Do some reading yourself before you make things up.

  • EMKOEMKO

    can you stop calling me anit-semitic just because i don’t support what isreal does. All i am saying is Isreali people use human shield they are not some special people who don’t do any wrong. You say its illegal but its still happening all the time they even know its illegal so they hide that they do it. The IDF admitted it had used Palestinians as human shields; it acknowledged using human shields 1,500 times during the Second Intifada. stop making it like hamas are the only evil people who use human shields. The practice was outlawed by the Supreme Court of Israel in 2005 but human rights groups say the IDF continues to use it, although they say the number of instances has dropped.
    The Israeli Defense Ministry appealed this decision, because they think its okay to use palestine people as human shields.

    An 11 year-old girl in the West Bank also told the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem that Israeli soldiers forced her to open windows in an apartment neighboring hers and to enter it before them.[26] After soldiers left, she said in her testimony that, “I was shaking with fear. I was afraid they would kill me or put me in jail. The only thing I wanted to do was sleep. I am afraid that the soldiers will come back and take me”

  • EJC

    How about Hamas stop using dirty tactics like making use of civilian buildings?

    Reminds me of someone cornered by the police and using a gun to his child’s head to escape.
    Pretty much a similar scenario here.

  • EJC

    Oh? And is Hamas minimizing collateral risk by not launching an attach nearby/from civilian buildings?

  • EJC

    Doesn’t that mean that all non-native inhabitants in the US, South Africa and Australia must go back home according to your logic?

    They pretty much did the same.
