Raid on Al-Shifa continues in Gaza

From Morning Report, 7:15 am on 17 November 2023

A day after storming into Gaza's largest hospital, Israeli forces say they have found proof that Hamas was using it as a command centre.

The army released a video, which has not been independently verified, showing weapons and equipment it said it had found hidden in the Al-Shifa hospital.

But it has produced no evidence so far of the extensive tunnel network and Hamas bunkers it has claimed are underneath the hospital.

However, the IDF says they aren't even close to having searched the entire hospital complex.

As it faces intense international criticism of its raid of the hospital, Israel highlighted how it had brought medical equipment and incubators for the premature babies at Al-Shifa.

But doctors say they don't need more incubators, but fuel to operate the ones they have.
