The al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City is now being referred to as a terror clinic, following the Israeli military’s discovery that the hospital grounds contained a 55-meter long terror tunnel belonging to Hamas. This well-known tactic of Hamas has been used to shield their infrastructure from attacks by the Israeli military, using sensitive buildings such as hospitals, schools, and kindergartens.
However, surveillance footage revealed that the hospital was firmly in the hands of Hamas, as hostages were taken to the clinic by terrorists. This new information sheds a different light on the international criticism of the hospital storming, as it was discovered that even doctors and other hospital staff did not reveal the presence of foreign terrorist hostages in the clinic.
During their attack on Israel, Hamas terrorists kidnapped around 240 hostages to the Gaza Strip, including citizens from 26 countries. The bodies of two Israeli hostages were found near the al-Shifa complex, with one of them being a 19-year-old soldier who was assassinated inside the hospital by a Hamas terrorist. These revelations challenge the previous narrative of international criticism against Israel’s actions.
