Israel-Hamas war live: The latest news on the Gaza crisis
Israel’s military on Sunday released footage of what it said were Hamas members “forcefully transporting hostages” through al-Shifa Hospital on October 7, citing the video as proof that Hamas used the hospital “on the day of the assassination as terrorist infrastructure. ” Hamas, in response, did not dispute that its hostages are receiving medical treatment and said that some were wounded by Israeli airstrikes. “Taking care of prisoners… and offering essential medical care is in our favor,” said a member of the Hamas political bureau. The Washington Post could not independently confirm when the videos were taken or who the people were in them. A Post reporter went into Gaza over the weekend, brought in by Israeli military officials who wanted to confirm that al-Shifa was doubling as a Hamas military base. The evidence remains inconclusive.
