(Scroll down for video) A new video has emerged showing Hamas terrorists firing rockets from a Gaza hospital.
The IDF Spokesperson Unit, published the video documenting Hamas terrorists firing rockets from the Waffa Hospital, located in the in Gaza City neighborhood of Shajaiyeh.
The Israeli Army said that after days of waiting for the hospital to be evacuated and after the director of the hospital said that there were no patients at the hospital, the IDF has struck it.
The military said the hospital has been a hotbed of terrorist activity, with gun and anti-tank missile fire from the site.
Israel has long claimed that Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza are using civilian centers, such as hospitals, mosques and schools, to launch attacks against Israel.
20 rockets were found in a United Nations school.
As we reported earlier, after four days of fire, Israel decided to attack a Gaza hospital, which terrorists used as their base to fire at Israelis, the Tazpit News agency reported. The gunfire emanated from the Waffa hospital, and the IDF was left with no choice but to attack.
For days, terrorists have been using the Waffa hospital as a military post. Terrorist have been firing small-arms fire and anti-tank rockets at IDF forces.
The IDF has refrained from responding. The lower levels of the hospital were being used by terror organizations as a command and control center.
The IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), approached several international Palestinian organizations on the issue more than once, and contacted the hospital director as well.
Israel has not received any response. Today, the fire intensified, and the IDF finally decided to respond. The IAF attacked the hospital complex with accurate fire.
