“War on Hospitals”: Israel says raid on Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital “precise & targeted” amid criticism


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.”

  1. The "human shield" excuse for the IDF's relentless war crimes has gone on long enough! The world is either fed up with this justification for committing the mass murder of civilians, or they resent Israel's brazenness to undermine people's intelligence.

  2. ?????? ????? ?? ???? ???? ??? ????? ?????? ??????? ?? ??????? ???? ???? ??????? ?? ??????? ???? ????? ?????? ????? ?? ??? ?? ?? ??? ?? ??????? ????? ????? ?? ????? ????? ?? ??????? ???? ??? ??????? ?? ?? ??? ??? ?? ???? ???? ???????? ???? ?? ????? ???? ????? ???????? ????????? ???? ?? ????? ???? ??? ??? ????? ???? ??? ?? ???? ?? ????? ????? ??? ???? ???? ????? ????? ???? ??? ????? ???? ?????? ???? ????

  3. Shame on the Canadian news outlets!!! The IDF is the most humane army in the world and do EVERYTHING in it's power to help the citizens of Gaza. Most Palestinians are so brainwashed they wouldn't know the truth if it slapped them in the face!! Hamas is the most disturbing people on the planet and anyone who doesn't get that is also sick in the mind!! Training children to hate is horrific…coaxing them to strap bombs to themselves to blow up innocent people…training them to commit murder while the heads of hamas and their families live the life of luxury! Why are the heads of hamas BILLIONAIRES? because stupid people feel sorry for the Palestinians but don't check where the money goes that they donate for THEM!!! Not one Palestinian ever had a life of luxury….just rubble and HATE!!! No one stole any land from them…they all came from Jordan and Egypt so if anything they are parked where they do not belong!!! Video evidence of what hamas does and where they store munitions is well documented. STOP THE LIES AND THE ANTISEMITISM GLOBAL NEWS!!!!!!

  4. Global news is making it sound like Hamas are in the hospital. The "Evidence" the IDF has presented has all be debunked, and proven to be fake. Cover that, or the isreali brothers that are puting out halarious videos highlighting how ridiculous the "evidence" presented by the IDF is.

  5. 1:55 Don’t insult people intelligence ??Are you talking to a 4 years old ??Or You are the 4 years old man ?? it “never happened in history “because no monster uses hospital, residential buildings , schools…for hiding, storying war equipments and building webs tunnels underground a city full of people ?? if you love your people you would not do that ??
    They can shoot anyone from those places but when opposite side fights back is “ war criminal “
    You and who ever apply this logic only insult people intelligence??

  6. Feels like Muslims blood has NO value and according to Israel they are animals!!! Even we do care for animals but NOT for Palestine civilians!! A sociopath was arguing with me that this is NOT a genocide!!! Then what is genocide????

  7. The entire free world must step back and rethink our relaitionship with the government of israel. Until we do, we are accomplices in the government of israel's oppression of Palestinians ongoing for generations.

  8. Hamas will gladly hide behind vulnerable Palestinian civilians during a firefight in a hospital so that they can then blame Israel, but the responsibility is on the IDF to minimize civilian casualties? Give me a break.

  9. Since the occupation army attack on al-Shifa hospital started the government of Gaza as well as the hospital director pleaded repeatedly that international observers/ investigators come to the hospital and look for the claimed command and control node that Israel claims to be there in the hospital to spare patient, displaced people and staff any harm. However, all these pleas met deaf ears. Now all patients are traumatized, some killed including premature babies, people were blind folded, stripped naked and some detained. Areas in the hospital and expensive equipment destroyed.

    In committing and justifying its crimes, israel has a very long track record of saying lies and changing its stories when there are exposed. The killing of US Al Jazeera correspondent, Shireen Abu Akleh is one recent example of which.

  10. Everyone in government and the media knows that Hamas has had its headquarters underneath Al-Shifa Hospital for years. Israel repeatefly told them to evacuate the hospital and offered to take the babies and children to safe, Israeli hospitals and Hamas wouldn't let them go. They WANT their own people slaughtered. They've said it many times.
