ISRAELI military have claimed to have unearthed another of Hamas’s terror tunnels under at Gaza’s largest hospital.
Footage released by the IDF appears to show a tunnel shaft hidden in the rubble, and a stash of weapons allegedly found in a pick-up truck in the al Shifa Hospital.

Troops claim the booby-trapped vehicle was prepared for the October 7 massacre, as it contained a large amount of weapons and ammunition.
IDF spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said: “We found a vehicle filled with ammunition, RPGs, AK-47s, we see handcuffs, knifes, preparation for taking of hostages from Israel on the October 7 attack.
“As you can see, they were very well prepared and where they’re hiding all of this equipment is in a hospital – a place that is supposed to be for humanitarian aid.”
He added: “They have all this evil hidden here.
“We’re in the heart of the hospital, and this is where they [Hamas] choose to hide everything because they know that the IDF won’t attack. They use the hospital as human shields.”
It comes as Hamas killers behind the Israel terror attack hid a huge weapons cache within the MRI centre of Gaza’s largest hospital.
Israeli special forces wearing night vision goggles found their al-Shifa HQ in a dramatic 2am raid.
Last night, they revealed the devastating arsenal they found hidden among bandages and dressings.
They included grab bags containing Kalashnikovs, AK-47s, grenades, body armour with Hamas insignia and ammo.
Hagari said troops have been in contact with hospital staff to facilitate the evacuation of patients, who have been used as human shields by Hamas.
He explained how terrorists likely managed to escape the hospital without being noticed.
“We found uniforms of Hamas terrorists which were thrown on the hospital floor, to allow those terrorists to escape, likely disguised as civilians,” Hagari said.
“We warned the hospital management in advance, before our operation.
Fellow Israel Defence Forces spokesman Lt-Col Jonathan Conricus said the evidence “totally confirms without a doubt that Hamas systematically uses hospitals in their military operations”.
He added: “What we have found is only the tip of the iceberg. These weapons have absolutely no business being inside a hospital.
Gaza’s health ministry denies the claims.
A Hamas spokesperson said: “The Israeli occupation’s claim that weapons are being stored at al-Shifa hospital is a blatant lie that should deceive nobody any longer.
“The Zionist occupation’s claim that it found weapons and military equipment at al Shifa medical complex is nothing but a continuation of its lies and cheap propaganda.”
Troops were given the green light to go into the hospital after US spooks obtained intelligence confirming it was a human shield for its command centre.
