IDF Conducts Ground Operation to Counter Hamas Activities

Written & Drafted By Shafeek Ahmad, Published On 15-November-2023, 01:10 AM EST.

In a recent development, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have initiated what they term as a “precise and targeted operation” within Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. The IDF’s statement alleges that Hamas has been engaging in “continued military use of the Shifa hospital,” a situation that, according to Israel, puts the hospital’s protected status under international law at risk.

Israel contends that it has provided ample time for Hamas operatives, whom it accuses of being inside the hospital, to cease their activities. Despite these claims, hospital officials vehemently deny accusations that Hamas has established a significant command center beneath Al-Shifa, which is Gaza’s largest 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,” reads the Israeli statement.

Ongoing Situation at Al-Shifa Hospital

Reports indicate that hundreds of staff and patients, along with several thousand seeking refuge from Israel’s offensive, remain within Al-Shifa. The IDF asserts that medics with specialized training for such environments are part of the forces involved in the operation.

A doctor from Al-Shifa Hospital, Dr. Khaled Abu Samra, revealed that they were given a 30-minute warning before the Israeli operation commenced. He described the situation, stating, “We were asked to stay clear of the windows and the balconies. We can hear the armored vehicles; they are very close to the entrance of the complex.”

Background and International Response

On Tuesday, the White House and the Pentagon supported Israel’s claims, stating that Hamas is using Al-Shifa Hospital for storing weapons and operating a command center. This assertion is backed by newly declassified U.S. intelligence, alleging that Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad are using hospitals, including Al-Shifa, as a means to “conceal and support their military operations and hold hostages.”

As the situation unfolds, the international community closely watches developments at Al-Shifa Hospital amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
