At dawn on Wednesday, Israeli occupation army forces stormed the Al-Shifa Medical Complex, west of Gaza City, after besieging it for the sixth day in a row.

At dawn on the 40th day of the aggression against Gaza, the army announced the start of a military operation in a “certain part” of the Al-Shifa Medical Complex, west of Gaza City.

The Israeli occupation army's announcement came after a statement by the Ministry of Health in Gaza in which it said, "The army officially informed the administration of the medical complex that it will storm the place tonight."

The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qudra, said in a press statement on Al Jazeera, “Dozens of soldiers entered the emergency department building in the Al-Shifa Complex, and occupation tanks entered the medical complex campus.”

He added, "The Israeli occupation forces are searching the basement of Al-Shifa Hospital."

Al-Qudra denounced the Israeli army’s shooting inside the hospital after storming it, saying: “Nothing calls for shooting inside Al-Shifa Hospital because there is no form of resistance there, and what the Israeli occupation is doing constitutes terrorism for doctors and patients.”

“They are not animals.” The last message from the surgeon at #Al-Shifa_Hospital, Hammam Al-Louh, before his martyrdom, explaining why he refrained from fleeing to the south. What did he say?

In the same context, the Director General of Gaza Hospitals, Dr. Muhammad Zaqout, confirmed that not a single bullet was fired from inside the Al-Shifa Complex during the storming.

Zaqout said in a press statement on Wednesday, “The occupation forces stormed the surgical and emergency buildings in the Shifa Complex and entered the emergency department, and are now searching the hospital’s basement.”

He pointed out that "the occupation army opened fire on whoever left the corridor that it claimed was safe to exit the Shifa Complex," adding that "the occupation army believed that its soldiers entering the Shifa Complex would be a victory for it, but it did not find any evidence of the presence of resistance."

Warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe
As for the Palestinian Minister of Health, Mai Al-Kaila, she held Israel responsible for the lives of the medical staff, patients, and displaced persons in the Shifa Medical Complex, and said, “The occupation forces are committing a new crime against humanity by besieging and bombing the Shifa Medical Complex.”

The Minister of Health warned of "catastrophic consequences for patients and medical staff if the occupation army carries out a storming of the Shifa Medical Complex."

"war crime"
For his part, Director General of the Government Media Office in the Gaza Strip, Ismail Al-Thawabta, confirmed that the Israeli occupation forces’ storming of the Al-Shifa Medical Complex west of Gaza City is a “war crime.”

Al-Thawabta said in a press statement on Al Jazeera, “The occupation will fail to prove that Al-Shifa Hospital is the headquarters of the resistance leadership,” pointing out that he expects “the occupation will bring weapons into the hospital, arrange them in a specific way, and then photograph them.”

He added: "We sent appeals to all international organizations and the Red Cross a few days ago to rescue the wounded in the Shifa complex, but they refused to respond and aligned themselves with the goals of the occupation, and bear part of the responsibility for what is happening."
