The Israeli army soldier entered the MRI centre of the Shifa hospital in Gaza. “A few of the thing that we found, totally confirms, without any doubt that Hamas systematically uses hospitals in their military operations in violation of the international law”. “These weapons have absolutely no business being inside a hospital,” the military spokesman, said in the video, adding that he believed the material was “just the top of the iceberg.” The military said the search was continuing, but it did not immediately show any sign of tunnels or an extensive military center.
