The al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City is now being referred to as a terror clinic after the Israeli military discovered that the hospital grounds contained a 55-meter long terror tunnel belonging to Hamas. This well-known tactic of Hamas has been used to use sensitive buildings such as hospitals, schools, and kindergartens as shields for their infrastructure, hoping to avoid attacks by the Israeli military.
The hospital was found to be firmly in the hands of Hamas, as revealed by surveillance footage showing hostages being taken to the clinic by terrorists. The international criticism of the hospital storming has taken on a new light with this new information, 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.
