After the Israel military forces said that they have entered Gaza hospital on Wednesday morning, they announced on Wednesday that incubators and baby food was provided to all in the Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza. The military called the operation a “precise and targeted operation against Hamas in a specified area.”
The forces urged all members of the group in the hospital to surrender. Less than an hour earlier, around 1 a.m. local time (2300 GMT), a Gaza health ministry spokesman said Israel had told officials in the enclave that it would raid the Shifa hospital complex “in the coming minutes.”
