WATCH: Devastating time-lapse video shows Israeli airstrikes flattening an entire Gaza neighborhood

The explosions reportedly targeted the Shijaiyah neighborhood shortly before a 12-hour ceasefire on Saturday. Photos from the ground show the aftermath.

BuzzFeed correspondent Sheera Frenkel tweeted this video with the caption “Time lapse shows entire neighborhood in Gaza being flattened by air strikes over the course of one hour.”

It’s unclear if the incident shows airstrikes or planned bombings over the course of an hour.

    I’m curious how someone just decided to set up a time-lapse camera in just the right place to catch the photos. Did they have some reason to think Israel would strike that particular neighborhood?

    It’ll make it easier for Israel to build even more settlements on the rubble. How convenient.

    Randy, don’t be so gullible. While Israel built a nation and contributed an endless supply of benefits to the world, Gaza has produced…what? A terrorist organization? And what about the West Bank? Why aren’t there rockets fired into Israel from there? Try and tie some strings together to see a plausible conclusion.

    Stop and think for a minute. Israel builds bomb shelters to protect it’s citizens. Gaza builds tunnels to infiltrate Israel to kidnap and/or kill Israelis. Gaza has been given billions in funds from Arab countries. Yasser Arafat claimed he was bankrupt but after his death he was found to be worth $1 billion, mostly in a stock market account. Did you also notice there is no attacks on Israel from the West Bank? And you think Israel wants to take over Gaza? Try reality for a change; it’ll open a whole new world for you.
