55 meter long tunnel found under Gaza’s biggest hospital Al Shifa: Israel

The Israeli Army has released a video of the tunnel found inside Al Shifa Hospital.


Israel on Sunday released a video of a Hamas tunnel under the largest hospital in the Gaza Strip. Israel has said that Hamas has prepared a network of hundreds of kilometers long secret tunnels and bunkers throughout the Palestinian territory. According to Reuters, Hamas has denied that its tunnels are located in civilian infrastructure such as hospitals.

Giving an update on its operation at Al Shifa hospital in Gaza City, the Israeli army said its engineers had discovered a tunnel 10 meters deep and 55 meters long up to the explosion-proof door.

“This type of door is used by the Hamas terrorist organization to prevent Israeli forces from entering Hamas bases,” a military statement accompanying the video said.

The statement did not say what was beyond the door. It said the tunnel was accessed through a shaft discovered in a shed within the Shifa compound, which contained munitions.
