CCTV ‘shows Hamas taking hostages into al-Shifa hospital’
Israel released footage of what it said were Hamas militants carrying hostages into Gaza’s biggest hospital amid hopes that a deal was close to release the 240 captives held by the terrorist organisation.
Israel also released footage purporting to show a tunnel used by Hamas militants underneath Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital, representing the culmination of a four-day operation there that has attracted widespread global condemnation.
