Israeli Forces Withdraw from Gaza Hospital after Two-Week Operation

Israel’s military says it has pulled out of al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City after a two-week military operation that has destroyed much of the hospital complex.

According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), troops “killed terrorists” and found “numerous weapons and intelligence documents” in the area.

The raid happened after Israel said it had intelligence indicating Hamas was using the hospital as a base to launch attacks.

Hamas denies using medical sites to carry out military operations.

Heavy fighting has been reported around the hospital, the largest in Gaza, in recent weeks.

In a statement following Monday’s withdrawal, the IDF said troops had “completed precise operational activity in the area of the Shifa Hospital and exited the area”.

“The troops killed terrorists in close-quarter encounters, located numerous weapons and intelligence documents throughout the hospital, while preventing harm to civilians, patients and medical teams.”

Earlier, Palestinian media reports said dozens of bodies were found in the vicinity of the complex, citing witnesses and the Hamas-run health ministry.
