Critics reject the Israeli claim that Al-Shifa Hospital served as a Hamas command center

Israel has long accused Hamas of using al-Shifa hospital in Gaza as a cover for its military operations.

Israeli forces raided al-Shifa hospital in Gaza for the second day in a row, after several days of encircling Gaza’s largest medical facility.

They claim to have found what they call “bags” containing weapons and uniforms of Hamas fighters.

However, many observers questioned what Israeli forces presented as evidence.

There are also concerns that the Israeli military, which has sole control over the operation, could fabricate evidence to support its allegations.

Several experts also argued that attacking hospitals – especially those that treat critically ill patients and children – could be a war crime under international law.
