ISRAEL has released shocking CCTV footage appearing to show Hamas terrorists dragging hostages into the al-Shifa hospital after the brutal October 7 massacre.
The IDF revealed the surveillance clips that shows severely wounded victims being hauled into Gaza’s largest hospital on stretchers.
It comes as the IDF said it uncovered a 55 metre long underground passage 10 metres below the ground earlier today amid claims that Hamas has a sprawling command centre beneath al-Shifa hospital.
The footage appears to show Hamas fighters forcibly transporting hostages, a Nepalese civilian and a Thai civilian, who were kidnapped from Israeli territory.
With a blurred face, one man can be seen being rushed into the hospital on a stretcher surrounded by several armed individuals.
Another is soon seen walking along the corridors from between 10:56am and 11:01am, on the day of the initial massacre, according to the video’s time stamp.
Other images released by the IDF from the CCTV footage at the Shaifa hospital show Hamas fighters inside the hospital, and outside the alleged rooms of the hostages.
IDF vehicles stolen during the murderous massacre can also be seen inside the Shifa Hospital area.
Alongside their string of “evidence”, they also revealed an infographic showing the locations near the Shaifa building where the bodies of cancer patient Yehudit Weiss, 65, and Israeli soldier CPL Noa Marciano, 19, were found several days ago.
Following ISA intelligence, IDF soldiers located the bodies of Noa and Yehudit in different buildings near the Shifa Hospital.
Sharing the chilling documentation on X, formerly known as Twitter, the IDF wrote: “These findings prove that the Hamas terrorist organization used the Shifa Hospital complex on the day of the October 7 Massacre as terrorist infrastructure”.
They say they have notified “relevant authorities” about the footage.
Noa was one of dozens hauled back over the border to Gaza after Hamas terrorists stormed over the border.
She was serving in the Nahal Oz base when it was overrun by militants.
Hamas released footage of the teen soldier speaking to the camera four days after she was taken hostage.
She identified herself and confirmed she was being held captive in the besieged Palestinian enclave of Gaza before it cut to vile images of what the terrorists claimed was Noa’s dead body.
IDF Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari says Noa was killed by Hamas, and not an Israeli airstrike.
He added: “Noa was kidnapped to an apartmentto Shifa Hospital. During the IDF in Gaza, a Hamas terrorist who was holding her, was killed.”
Citing a pathology report, he said the teenager was wounded by an IDF strike, and later taken to al-Shifa, where she was murdered.
According to Reuters, Israel has also claimed that a captive soldier had been executed and two foreign hostages were still being held at the site that has remained their focus of their massive ground offensive.
It comes as the IDF released shocking footage today, revealing what it claims is a huge network of Hamas tunnels buried below Gaza’s largest hospital.
Footage of the tunnels shows a deep staircase leading to the entrance of the tunnel shaft, which consists of various defence means including a blast-proof door and a firing hole.
“This type of door is used by the Hamas terrorist organisation to block Israeli forces from entering the command centres and the underground assets belonging to Hamas,” the IDF said.
The tunnel shaft was uncovered in the area of the hospital underneath a shed alongside a vehicle containing numerous weapons including RPGs, explosives, and Kalashnikov rifles.
The new footage show that the tunnel shaft has a winding staircase from around three meters deep, continuing down for another seven meters until it reaches part of the tunnel network.
The tunnel continues for five meters, before turning to the right and continuing for another 50 meters.
Mark Regev, a senior advisor to Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said troops had also found a Hamas command and control room at the hospital.
He added: “Once again we have to show – and we still will, it’s just a matter of time – the connection between the tunnel network and the hospital.”
Regev said there were fears of booby traps awaiting IDF forces in the tunnels underground, and that the IDF would have conclusive evidence in the next few days.
IDF and ISA forces are continuing to uncover the route of the tunnel.
Aerial photos of the Shifa Hospital complex near Hamas terrorist infrastructure locations found, including explosive devices in the physical therapy ward, an interrogation room in the cardiology ward, weapons and intelligence in the MRI centre, and a tunnel shaft that was located near the Qatari Building of the hospital.
“The findings clearly prove that numerous buildings in the hospital’s complex are used by Hamas as cover for terrorist infrastructure and activities,” the IDF said.
“This is further evidence of the cynical manner Hamas uses the residents of the Gaza Strip as a human shield for their murderous terrorist activities,” they added.
Earlier today, the IDF said troops stormed several homes of Hamas leaders as they continued to step up their ground offensive in Gaza.
They claimed soldiers raided the strip’s upscale Rimal neighbourhood with airstrikes and destroyed a Hamas military camp area.
It came as some 31were evacuated from al-Shifa hospital amid fears of a growing humanitarian crisis in the Strip.
The hospital has become a symbol of the widespread suffering of Palestinian civilians as patients, including newborns, have been dying from dwindling supplies and no electricity.
The World Health Organisation previously warned that the hospital was becoming a “cemetery” as dead bodies pile up inside and outside.
Palestinian civilians have been left fleeing for their lives asattempts to destroy Hamas after the terror group massacred 1,200 civilians on October 7.
Families living in Gaza have been caught in the brutal crossfire, with regular accusations that the terrorists are attempting to use them as “human shields”.
Much of the northern part of the strip has been turned into a devastated warzone – with ruined buildings, dwindling supplies and horrific suffering for Gaza’s people.
The Red Cross estimates that some 1.5million civilians have been forced to flee south amid the Israeli onslaught from land, air and sea.
Figures for the death toll remain unverified – but Hamas’ health officials claim more than 11,000 civilians, including more than 4,500 children have been killed.
Israel disputes these figures – and US President Joe Biden said he had “no confidence” in them.
But Benjamin Netanyahu admitted Israel has “not been successful” in reducing civilian casualties.
He said the deaths, however, must be blamed on Hamas – not Israel.
And as thecontinues there have been growing calls for a humanitarian ceasefire to stop the bloodshed.
