IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says troops are still operating in Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital complex, working to uncover the Hamas terror group’s underground infrastructure in the area.
He says there are four main tasks at hand: to obtain information on the Hamas-held hostages, to locate weapons and Hamas command rooms, to locate Hamas operatives in the area, and to uncover and destroy Hamas’s underground infrastructure, under the hospital.
“Even at this hour, special forces are operating at the shaft we uncovered at Shifa, and we will publish material soon,” he says.
Israel has accused Hamas of having its main command center under Shifa hospital.
Hagari says troops are operating at other hospitals in northern Gaza, where Hamas is believed to have infrastructure as well.
