Under vinterens israelske krig mot Hamas i Gaza rapporterte de norske legene Mads Gilbert og Erik Fosse at Shifa-sykehuset i Gaza by kun inneholdt sivile sårede. Det stemmer ikke. Gazas statsminister, Ismail Haniyeh fra Hamas, brukte Shifa-sykehuset som hovedkvarter under krigen. Dette melder Jerusalem Post:
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh operated a command and control center inside Shifa Hospital in downtown Gaza City throughout Operation Cast Lead in January, the IDF revealed on Wednesday.
Hamas believed that Israel would not target the hospital due to the high risk of collateral damage.
Guards were posted at the entrance to the ward and field commanders took advantage of the humanitarian corridor and cessation of action that the IDF instituted every day for several hours, to enter the hospital and meet with senior Hamas officials to receive instructions.
Jeg har svært vanskelig for å tro at de norske legene ikke visste om dette.
