Hamas headquarters, located near Al Shifa Hospital in the heart of Gaza City, announced that the IDF had captured it.
Forces from the 162nd Division, with the assistance of the Air Force and Special Forces, raided and captured the organization’s headquarters.
“During fierce fighting, more than 50 Hamas fighters were killed. In addition, important documents with military intelligence were found and several tunnels, ammunition factories and anti-tank missile launch sites were destroyed,” said IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari.
Below the hospital is the headquarters
According to what he has claimed in the past few days, under the Al Shifa hospital is the headquarters of operations of Hamas and several underground complexes, which are used by the leaders of the organization to direct attacks against Israel.
The “military quarter” that the Israelis “hit”.
“This is a ‘military quarter’, which is the heart of Hamas’ operational activities. It was used, among other things, to plan and prepare the October 7 attack. “Over the past few days, infantry, engineer and armored forces under the command of the Givati Brigade worked to clear the area and neutralize the infrastructure, including an extensive network of underground tunnels,” the IDF said after seizing the headquarters.
As the Israeli forces explain, the “military quarter” consists of strategic Hamas locations, including the group’s central intelligence headquarters and air array headquarters, as well as Hamas government offices such as the Interior Ministry and a police station.
In addition, the area includes the largest training facilities in the Gaza Strip for civil warfare, military outposts, warehouses and various munitions factories (used to produce rockets, anti-tank missiles, UAVs and explosives).
The IDF also released photos of Hamas weapons found at the headquarters.
