Title: Israeli Army Identifies Gaza City’s Largest Hospital as Hamas Underground Headquarters
In a shocking development, the Israeli army has declared that Al Shifa, Gaza City’s largest hospital, is serving as the underground headquarters for Hamas. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claims that the notorious terrorist group’s extensive 300-mile-long tunnel network runs beneath multiple medical facilities, including Al Shifa. This network is said to connect to Hamas’ key command center.
The IDF recently released a layout of Al Shifa hospital, indicating the presence of at least five “Hamas Underground Complex” entrances supposedly hidden within the medical facility. Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant described Gaza as “the biggest terrorist base ever built by man,” stating that these tunnels also house communication rooms, ammunition depots, and sleeping quarters for Hamas operatives.
However, Hamas vehemently denies these allegations, arguing that the Israeli military is using it as an excuse to target hospitals and civilian areas. Former IDF member Avi Issacharoff revealed that the existence of underground headquarters beneath Al Shifa has long been an open secret in Gaza.
As tensions rise, Israel has launched multiple airstrikes in the vicinity of Al Shifa to disrupt Hamas operations. Regrettably, the hospital’s solar panels and power system have suffered damage. The IDF has also accused other medical centers, including the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia, of harboring Hamas. In response, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry clarified that the hospital was primarily constructed for humanitarian purposes rather than Hamas’ activities.
The looming question remains: how will the IDF neutralize these tunnels without endangering the lives of innocent civilians? As airstrikes persist and hospitals are repeatedly warned, the IDF has yet to reveal its strategy. However, experts suggest that the IDF may employ “sponge bombs” to seal off passages within the tunnels, effectively trapping Hamas fighters.
This contentious situation underscores the difficult circumstances prevailing in Gaza, where hospitals not only serve to provide essential medical care to the civilian population but also find themselves unwittingly entangled in the frontlines of a bitter conflict. The true nature of the underground network beneath Al Shifa and other medical facilities remains a source of ongoing debate, as international observers anxiously await the next steps in this complex and fraught situation.
