Watch as IDF LTC (Res.) Jonathan Conricus exposes the countless Hamas
weapons IDF troops have uncovered in the Shifa Hospital’s MRI building
Jerusalem, Israel — November 15, 2023 … Israel Defense Forces commandos found a Hamas command center and an abundance of weapons and combat gear belonging to Palestinian Hamas terrorists in Gaza’s biggest hospital on Wednesday.
Al Shifa hospital had become the chief target of a Gaza City operation by Israeli forces, who said the “beating heart” of the Hamas fighters’ operations was headquartered in tunnels beneath it. Iran backed Hamas denied the accusation and on Wednesday dismissed the Israeli statements as “lies and cheap propaganda”. But for Hamas which is 50 percent propaganda and 50 percent barbaric terrorists who behead Jewish babies and murder both Christians and Jews at Peace Festivals, their denial was overshadowed by transparent evidence and even the words of local Palestinians who were pleading to international media to have Hamas removed from Gaza, stating: “They are hiding among us, killing our families, they are not Muslims, they are evil.”
IDF spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said the elite special operations soldiers were still searching, having entered the hospital early on Wednesday after days of clashes around it.
The IDF simultaneously released the above video which showed some of the Hamas terror equipment it recovered from an undisclosed building in the hospital compound, including automatic weapons, grenades, ammunition and flak jackets.
In one hospital department, “the soldiers located an operational command center and technological assets belonging to Hamas, indicating that the terrorist organization uses the hospital for terrorist purposes, making the hospital a military target under international law.”
Israel said its troops had entered the hospital compound on Wednesday after killing terrorists in a clash outside. Once inside, they said there had been no fighting and no friction with civilians, patients or staff.
In fact, the IDF immediately offered humanitarian and medical aid to the hospital which included fuel, incubators and medical supplies.
Witnesses who spoke to Reuters from inside the compound described an at times tense situation as Israeli troops moved between buildings. Sporadic shooting was heard but there were no reports of anyone hurt inside the grounds.
The Israeli military released photos of a soldier standing beside cardboard boxes marked “medical supplies” and “baby food”, at a location Reuters verified was inside Al Shifa. Other photos showed Israeli troops in tactical formation walking past makeshift tents and mattresses.
In the Shifa Hospital, IDF troops found an operational tunnel shaft and a vehicle containing a large number of weapons.
The IDF released videos and photographs which clearly shows the tunnel shaft and weapons.
The IDF also said the body of a Jewish woman, one of around 240 hostages taken by Hamas terrorists when they stormed into southern Israel on Oct. 7, was recovered by troops in a building near the hospital.
The body of 65-year-old Yehudit Weiss, a resident of Kibbutz Be’eri, was found by Israeli soldiers in Gaza City and brought back to Israel.
The US on Tuesday confirmed that Hamas and Islamic Jihad use Shifa and other Gaza hospitals, and tunnels underneath them, “to conceal and to support their military operations and to hold hostages.”
The purpose of the IDF is to preserve the State of Israel, to protect its independence, and to stop its enemies from disrupting everyday life for Israel’s citizens and residents.
