Based on intelligence information and an operational necessity IDF forces are carrying out a precise and targeted operation against Hamas in a specified area in the shifa hospital the IDF is conducting a ground operation in Gaza to defeat Hamas and rescue our hostages Israel is at war with Hamas not with the civilians in
Gaza you know we do have information that Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad uses some hospitals in the Gaza Strip including the alifa hospital um as a way to conceal and support their military operations and hold hostages they have tunnels underneath these hospitals and so Hamas and P members
Operate a command and control node from alifah Hospital in Gaza City they have weapons stored there and are prepared to respond to an Israeli military operation against the facility so this is I’m just telling you what we as the um intelligence Community assesses is happening in Gaza City how Hamas is
Using these hospitals to operate but absolutely we do not want to see a firefight in a hospital where there are innocent civilians it’s extremely critical situation uh when the Israeli Army may have raided uh Al shifa hospital if uh we can call this war in Gaza one can
Call it the war on hospitals the war on injured people the war on sick people the war on infants the war on infants who are in incubators it never happened in anywhere in history that hospitals are targets what is happening in Gaza is a very obvious very clear War crime that Israel
Is committing against those who have been treated in the hospitals uh many of the people injured in the areas around the hospital are not allowed to enter the hospital ambulances had been targeted and can be targeted they received some patients who had been uh exposed to direct gunshots probably
Through snipers all this is insane it’s unacceptable this is probably this is the most intensified targeting of Health Facilities that we ever witnessed look Hamas must not should not use a place like a hospital as a shield for their presence that is as strong a statement under humanitarian
Law as is the statement that the hospital should not become a place of War of danger we find these two issues equally important and equally understandable for both sides

Amidst escalating tensions in Gaza, Israel’s military has announced on Wednesday that it is conducting what the IDF called a “precise and targeted” operation against Hamas in al-Shifa hospital.
According to Sabrina Singh, U.S. Defence Department spokesperson, Hamas and PIJ members are using tunnels underneath hospitals to operate a command-and-control center from al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. “They have weapons stored there and are prepared to respond to an Israeli military operation against the facility,” she said.
Meanwhile, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said the Israeli war in Gaza amounts to a “war on hospitals” after IDF troops raided Gaza’s biggest hospital.
Meanwhile, the director of Doctors without Borders’ Health Monitoring Program in Amman described the escalation in Gaza as “the most intensified targeting of health facilities that we ever witnessed.”
Martin Griffiths, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, emphasized that hospitals should not be used as shields by Hamas. Griffiths expressed his concern on social media platform X, stating, “Hospitals are not battlegrounds.”
