IDF: ‘Targeted operation’ at hospital meant ‘to defeat Hamas and perhaps rescue hostages’

An IDF spokesman says the military “is not overrunning” Gaza City’s Al-Shifa hospital, asserting Israeli troops are conducting a “precise and targeted operation against a specific location… in order to defeat Hamas and perhaps rescue hostages.”

“Our goal is to bring [the hostages] home. Our goal is to seek out Hamas wherever they are hiding,” Lt. Col. (res.) Peter Lerner tells CNN, describing the hospital as “perhaps even the beating heart” of the terror group’s operations.
