Israel has raided the largest hospital in Gaza, and it call a “precise and targeted operation” is ongoing this morning. It believes Hamas is using the Al-Shifa hospital as a command centre, and since mid-yesterday our time, its troops have been searching for Hamas infrastructure and “terrorist means”. It’s impossible to get verified/independent information from there, but Israeli officials say they told hospital authorities of the plan to search the facility and have delivered medical aid, including incubators, baby food and medical supplies. Palestinian officials, the heads of United Nations several agencies and some regional leaders condemned the raid, warning that it risked lives. But overnight, Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu brushed off concerns saying that there is “no place in Gaza that we will not reach.” He says the elimination of Hamas and return of the hostages “are 2 sacred missions.”
