Interrogated Hamas official: Al Shifa Hospital was extensively used for terror

A member of Hamas intelligence wing that was apprehended by the IDF, has detailed the various branches of the Palestinian terror organization that utilized Al Shifa Hospital as a terror base, contrary to pro-Palestinian sources and media outlets previously denying it

A senior Hamas military intelligence officer in an ISA interrogation: "Units of the military intelligence operated from Al Shifa Hospital. The Interior Ministry, the Emergency Committees and the government of Hamas also worked from there. It's a safe place.”
Many affiliated with terrorist organizations were apprehended in the IDF's targeted operation, led by the 162nd Division and the ISA, at Al Shifa Hospital. This includes the Deputy Commander of the Rocket Unit in the Islamic Jihad, commanding positions in the Hamas Military Wing, and senior operatives in the Ministry of Internal Security and Hamas' Emergency Committees. The apprehended suspects were transferred for interrogation at the ISA and Unit 504 in the Intelligence Directorate (J2).
Among the apprehended are also many operatives from Hamas’ Military Intelligence, who in their interrogations bring valuable and important information for the continuation of the fight against the terrorist organization. Among them is the Deputy Head of the Information Department in Hamas' Military Intelligence, Ashraf Ibrahim Samur.

False denials exposed

In late October, almost three weeks into the war, Al Jazeera has reported Hamas denials about using the biggest hospital in the enclave as a terror base. At the time, Hamas political official Ezzat El-Reshiq told Al Jazeera such claims are "baseless", claiming IDF is using these claims to "pave the way" toward targeting Palestinian Civilians.
Hamas Spokesperson Osama Hamdan repeated these claims at a press conference, further saying that whatever evidence was found inside the complex, was planted by the IDF.
