nteresting that someone was filming. It’s almost like some Pali knew or suspected the police station was being used for nefarious purposes. What is obviously intended as propaganda against Israel kind of shows instead that the Palis are trying to manipulate public opinion.

  1. I don’t have the ability to go frame-by-frame, but I think that was a ground-based explosion, not an IAF strike. I couldn’t see any ordnance arriving, just the start of an explosion, which fits well with the delay for the woman to exit the frame and the calm radio chatter from the cameraman and his companion. Blow up your own police station near civilians and blame the Israelis. Brilliant!

  2. I was watching some footage of IAF airstrikes on the news today and was surprised to see almost every explosion (8-10) result in a very uniform vertical tower of smoke. I’m left wondering what type munitions were being employed.

    1. Without having seen the same footage, I’m gonna make a guess here. The IAF is striving ti minimize collateral damage, so I suspect most of the drops are 500lb LGBs fuzed with a slight delay to allow more penetration, thus minimizing the frag pattern. When those are used,the blast tends to show a nice vertical column.
