Israel unveiled disturbing footage on Sunday, claiming it depicted Hamas terrorists using two hospitals in Gaza City. They pledged to encircle the enclave within 48 hours and initiate ground combat.
Israeli Defense Forces spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari presented videos to reporters that he said revealed Hamas agents using an underground entrance tunnel at the Sheikh Hamad Hospital — and also opening fire at Israeli forces from the medical center.
“If it weren’t enough that we exposed a tunnel under the hospital, the terrorists also shot at our soldiers from within the hospital,” Hagari said.
The IDF spokesman said Israel also uncovered a tunnel network under the Indonesian Hospital, as well as rocket launchers stationed near the building.
“Hamas systematically built the Indonesian Hospital to disguise its underground terror infrastructure,” Hagari alleged while producing a military aerial shot of the complex.
He also presented recordings of Hamas officials allegedly discussing their use of fuel reserves that belong to the hospital.
