Powerful raw video shows Israeli airstrikes on Gaza

Warning: The content of this video is graphic. 

Video footage shows Palestinians running from black smoke as the Israeli army ramps up its offensive and launches airstrikes in the Gaza Strip. At least nine Palestinians, including two children, have died.

The Israeli military launched the operation Tuesday in response to rocket attacks by the militant group Hamas but has yet to send in ground troops.

The footage shows shattered buildings and bloodied civilians on the streets of Gaza. A series of airstrikes is captured at the end of the video.

The Israel Defense Forces released its own video of purported "terror activity sites in Gaza" on Tuesday:
