The Israeli operation continues in the Gaza Strip. The troops are now heading towards the South, which is supposed to be secure, while the northern half is in ruins, which hampers any possibility of civilians returning in the short and medium term.
This relentlessness is all the more incomprehensible given that at the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, presented, with 3D video to support it, as housing the entrance to tunnels and ultra-secure Hamas vaults, of which this would be the headquarters, the evidence is very weak.
In 2008-2009, during Operation “Cast Lead”, then in 2014, during Operation “Protective Edge”, this hospital had already been designated as housing the military leadership of Hamas. Here again, the officially announced goal was to put an end to the Palestinian Islamist organization.
A week ago, a former senior official of the Shin Bet, the Israeli domestic intelligence service, told the New York Times that Hamas headquarters consisted of several floors housing meeting rooms, living quarters and storage spaces, and that several hundred people could gather in these spaces underneath the hospital.
Supporting the idea that Hamas is similar to Daesh
Even the team from the BBC, British television, one of the most professional in the world, despite being on board with the Israeli army, found itself unable to show anything other than a few Kalashnikovs and bullet-proof vests. and first aid kits packaged in plastic bags. Although, like everywhere in the city, there are underground passages, no operational room has been found. Which can raise doubts about the Israeli narrative.
Thus, obviously no one doubts the attack perpetrated by Hamas on October 7. Videos filmed by these militants clearly show that they are shooting at Israeli civilians. But the emerging testimonies, collected by the police and Israeli intelligence services, contradict Benjamin Netanyahu’s account of events. This is all the more important since journalist Nicole Zedeck, of the pro-Israeli channel I24News, indicated in her English edition on October 10 that at least 40 babies had been killed.
“Some of them had their heads cut off”, she clarified. She herself had seen nothing. She was only repeating the words of the deputy commander of Unit 71, David Ben Zion, who even told the journalist that he “had never seen such acts of cruelty”.
Enough to support the idea that Hamas is similar to Daesh. However, even if the Israeli government rushed to relay the tweets, no image came to support the veracity of the remarks. It is true that David Ben Zion is none other than one of the leaders of the settlement council of Shomron, in the West Bank.
