Skip to comments.And again: Hamas leadership hiding in basement of Shifa Hospital

A journalist source who is close to security sources in the Middle East says 'Hamas' leadership is taking advantage of the underground structures underneath the Shifa Central Hospital in Gaza as a hideout for commanders and Hamas leaders to protect them against attack by the Israel Air Force.Many years ago, I had a beehive in front of my house in New Jersey. To get rid of the bees, I waited until nightfall, sprayed the entrance to the beehive with alcohol, and then set it on fire. The bees were forced out in the dark and were unable to return.
"In the ongoing battle between Hamas and the Israeli army," the source further related, "Hamas leaders aren't just using the underground facility at Shifa Hospital as a hideout, but also as a command center for Hamas' leaders and commanders, and from here all orders are issued to Hamas activists in the field. Shifa Hospital, which is in the Rimal district in Gaza, is one of the main absorption centers for treating the sick and wounded in Gaza."
Ironically, in 1980, Israel helped renovate Shifa Hospital in an effort to improve relations with the 'Palestinians.' Part of the Israeli renovation included a large underground basement, which includes offices and hospital rooms to absorb the wounded. Until 1940, the facility was a medical base for the British army, until 1950 when the Egyptians, who then ruled the Gaza Strip, turned it into a hospital. According to the source, "during an emergency you can enter the facility through hidden, underground tunnels, which are hundreds of meters away from the facility."
Sounds like the place needs a GPS-guided 1000lb bomb (or six).
What’s to stop the IAF from doing it? Europe won’t wuvv them anymore? News Flash—they don’t. And WON”T.
“Safe zones” for the enemy don’t work, and never will.
Message to Israel: The Arabs hate you, the leadership of the western world hates you, and the eastern powers won’t harm you as long as their oil keeps flowing. No amount of restraint will change these facts so stop pulling punches and engage in all out war with your enemies. If the “palestinians” wish to cuase more harm to their own civilians so be it.
Then attack it and don’t worry about “collateral demage.”
Bomb & kill EVERY living thing in Gaza...
Bulldoze what’s left... I call that a start...
Tweets: Red alert in Dimona (nuke plant town).
It would be a rather long tunnel to get to the hospital. A lightning strike with main battle tanks, APV’s and commandos would likely be a better solution. In and out in 30 minutes, in the middle of the night.
Dimona: 2 rockets intercepted, another lands in open area.
would that require tanks and troops?
I wonder what would happen if an IAF pilot just decided on his own to drop a bunker buster on this place?
Truly? The pilot would be fired, prosecuted and probably be put in jail.
That is a war crime. It also makes that “hospital” a legitimate target.
Level it and bury those rats under the rubble.
