Al-Shifa Hospital Gets Stormed by Israeli Special Forces


Israeli Special Operations Forces launched their attack on Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza at dawn, Tel Aviv Time, on Wednesday.

Al-Shifa Hospital has been the subject of much debate over the past few days as Israel tightened its cordon around Hamas strongholds in North Gaza.

It is believed that many of the hostages taken on October 8 are being held in Hamas’s fortifications, underground tunnels, and hospitals.

Israel, and other nations, concluded that Al-Shifa Hospital was a Hamas-run underground facility.

On Tuesday, the White House said that it had intelligence indicating Hamas was using hospitals in Gaza such as Al-Shifa Hospital to “conceal and support their military operations and to hold prisoners.”

John Kirby made the announcement on Air Force One, as President Joe Biden traveled to the APEC Summit in San Francisco.

For the first time, the U.S. has revealed specific intelligence about how and where Hamas held Israelis and Americans as hostages when it attacked Israel.

He told reporters that he could confirm: “I have information that Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Al-Shifa Hospital in the Gaza Strip used tunnels below them and hospitals to support and hide their military activities, and to hold prisoners. ”

Israelis warned the hospital staff about an imminent attack.

The hospital director and staff may have received separate notifications to avoid accidental martyrdom.

Hamas is the only group that confirmed this warning. A Hamas commander in the hospital, a civilian facility, sent a text message to a journalist, alerting him to an impending attack.

Egyptian medical staff evacuated critical patients before the attack using IDF equipment.

Contrary to what is said about Israel in the media, Israel follows the Geneva Conventions which are intended to reduce the risks of harming civilians.

Al-Shifa is a sprawling Israeli complex built in the early 1980s. This hospital had underground operating rooms and was equipped with a tunnel network.

This is one of the many reasons that Israeli security sources believe there is a Hamas main command bunker under or near the large cement cellar beneath the area of Building 2 at Shifa Hospital. It is for this reason that Israeli security officials believe there is an underground Hamas command bunker beneath or near the large concrete cellar under the area of Building 2 of the Hospital. The building is closed to reporters.
