Special Forces from Israel Enter Besieged Nasser Hospital


The Israeli military has confirmed that its special forces are currently operating within the Nasser hospital in Khan Younis, Gaza. The forces are reportedly carrying out a “precise and limited operation” as they believe Hamas fighters are hiding within the hospital. There is also speculation that the bodies of Israeli hostages may be located there. This action follows the order from the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) for thousands of displaced individuals to evacuate the site just a day prior. The Nasser hospital is the largest medical facility in the southern region of the Gaza Strip. More updates on this developing story will be provided as they become available.
