Weapons were found inside the Al Shifa hospital, the Israeli armed forces announced

Israeli troops found weapons and “terrorist infrastructure” during their ongoing raid at a specific location inside Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza Stripa military official said today.

As he told reporters, “there was no fighting inside the hospital complex after soldiers arrived there during the night and there were no conflicts with medical staff or patients.”

For its part, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry today accused Israel’s army of “flagrantly violating” international law by launching a military operation at Al-Sifah Hospital in Gaza City, while Jordan assessed that the “silence” of the UN Security Council allows “brutality”. The Palestinian president did not speak of a “war against the existence of the Palestinians”.

In its statement, the Palestinian ministry called for “international intervention to protect civilians” at the hospital.

In the meantime Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi denounced that the Israeli operation in Al Shifa “demonstrates the barbarity, which is allowed by the silence of the UN Security Council”.

“We denounce the silence of the Security Council regarding this barbarity. This silence covers war crimes. This silence cannot be accepted or justified. The Council must act,” he underlined in a post on Platform X, denouncing “a disaster” at the hospital.

About 2,300 people, according to the UN, including patients, health workers and those displaced by the war, are inside Al Shifa in dire conditions, without water or electricity.

The Israeli army accuses Hamas of using the hospital as a military base, which the Palestinian movement denies.

As the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, denounced in his speech today, Israel is waging “a war against the existence of the Palestinians” in the Gaza Strip.

Abbas also spoke of “a barbaric war” and “genocide”, which is “carried out under the watchful eyes of the world community”.


“It is a war against the existence of the Palestinians, against the Palestinian national identity, the identity of the land and its people,” said the Palestinian president, who is based in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank.
