(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Amateur video posted on a social media website purported to show a huge blast amidst the buildings of a Gaza neighbourhood following an Israeli air strike. The video, said to be shot on Saturday (November 17) shows a large explosion ripping through the densely populated area, releasing thick black smoke into the sky. Reuters is unable to independently verify the content of the video, which was obtained from a social media website. Israel on Sunday (November 18) continued to bombard Palestinian militant targets in the Gaza Strip for a fifth straight day, preparing for a possible ground invasion while also spelling out its conditions for a truce.
