Israel says 50 Hamas militants killed, 180 arrested at key Gaza hospital

Jerusalem, (UNI) The Israeli military said on Tuesday that it had killed over 50 Hamas militants and apprehended almost 180 others during its new round of operations at the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that “precise operations” were launched targeting the hospital.

Hamas militants were killed in close-quarters combat, and the Israeli army located weapons in the area “while avoiding harm to civilians, medical staff, and medical equipment,” noted the statement.

In the area of Al-Qarara in Khan Younis, the Israeli army killed Palestinian militants and destroyed infrastructure, including one from which anti-tank missiles were launched at Israeli troops two days ago, the statement added.

The IDF began its raid on Al-Shifa Hospital early Monday. The hospital, the largest one in the Gaza Strip, has been previously targeted by the Israeli army.
