IDF: 480 Hamas, Islamic Jihad Terrorists Arrested at Shifa Hospital

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said Sunday that it had killed 170 terrorists and arrested 480 more during operations at Shifa Hospital over the past week, as Israeli forces surrounded another two hospitals in Gaza.

The IDF said that it had detained roughly 800 people at Shifa Hospital, meaning that more than half of them were members of terror organizations.

In a statement, the IDF and Israel Security Agency (ISA) said:

CNN reported Sunday, citing the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (the local equivalent of the Red Cross), that the IDF had surrounded both the Al-Amal Hospital and Nasser Hospital in southern Gaza.

Israel has previously noted that Palestinian terrorists have used hospitals in Gaza to hide terrorists, weapons, and hostages, as well as to establish underground command posts and tunnel networks.

The use of hospitals for military purposes is a violation of international humanitarian law, and means that those hospitals cannot claim protection from attack.

Israel has tried to protect actual doctors and patients while fighting terrorists.
