The Israel Defesce Forces (IDF) said senior Hamas terrorists have regrouped inside the hospital and are using it to launch attacks.

Hundreds of displaced Palestinians are sheltering at the hospital, which was raided by Israeli forces earlier in the conflict.

Al-Shifa hospital was Gaza's main medical facility prior to the conflict, but its operations have been severely disrupted after months of fighting, according to the BBC.
