Israel-Hamas war: IDF raids Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital

Israel said it had information indicating that the hospital had been used by “senior Hamas terrorists.” Meanwhile, an Israeli delegation was expected to head to Qatar for cease-fire talks.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) dropped leaflets around al-Shifa Hospital hospital in Gaza, telling people to evacuate immediately.

It follows a morning Israeli raid on the hospital, Gaza’s biggest before the war.

The IDF earlier described it as a “precise operation” targeting “senior Hamas terrorists” that it said were using the hospital. 

It said troops had been instructed on the importance of operating cautiously as well as on measures to be taken to avoid harm to patients, civilians, medical staff and medical equipment and said patients were not required to evacuate.

But in the airdropped leaflets and on its Arabic accounts on X, formerly Twitter, it said people in Rimal and al-Shifa “are in a dangerous combat zone.”

“The IDF is operating hard in its residential areas to destroy terror infrastructure,” said the statement, which ordered the people to take the coastal road toward al-Mawasi in the southern Gaza Strip.
