I watched the video a couple times but I still doubt it was aliens. Here’s what the article says about it (breaks added):
Two witnesses who happened to be at the Armon Hanatziv panoramic lookout over Mount Zion and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel at 1am managed to film what might be one of the most interesting UFO clips ever captured (see video below). The sighting took place only yesterday on the morning of the 28th of January.
The men notice the large ball shaped UFO suspended in the night sky and begin to film. At a little after one minute into the clip the UFO descends almost to ground level directly over the Temple Mount. The craft hovers there for a short while and then flickers and shoots upwards at an incredible speed, to the shock of the witnesses.
One of the witnesses notes during the filming, in Hebrew, that he is certain that it must be forbidden for civilian craft to hover over Jerusalem in such a manner.
This video opens all kinds of questions; Do aliens take an interest in our religions? Did aliens have a hand in creating our belief systems? And finally, is this object the star that was seen over nearby Bethlehem at the time of the birth of Jesus?
Perhaps this UFO visit to the Temple Mount is a prelude to open contact believed by many to be only a short time away.
My thought was that a military helicopter was hovering, came down, shot at something, and something shot back. The camera is so far away from the action it’s hard to say with any assurance that either possibility could be right, of course.
The video opens the gates to all kinds of silly questions, as evidenced by those written above. None of them are anything anyone can answer, either.
