The IDF says it has breached a blast door at the end of a Hamas tunnel discovered by forces last week underneath Gaza’s Shifa Hospital.
It publishes two images, one showing the open door and the other further inside the tunnel.
Earlier this week, the IDF released footage showing the inside of the tunnel shaft and part of the tunnel. After around 55 meters, the tunnel ended with a blast door, likely protecting Hamas assets below ground.
The IDF has said for weeks that a major network of tunnels and bunkers exists under Shifa.
The tunnel shaft had been located on the hospital grounds under a canopy, where IDF troops had also found a Hamas pickup truck with weapons in it, similar to those used by the terror group in the October 7 attacks.
Along with Shifa, Israel accuses Hamas of using other hospitals in the Strip for terror purposes.
