# The Israeli Defence Force says it is carrying out a precise and targeted operation against Hamas in a specified area in the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. The hospital has become a strategic objective for Israel, which sees it as the nerve centre of Hamas’ administrative and military capabilities. The IDF says it recently told Gazan authorities that all military activity within the hospital had to end but this has not happened. It adds that the intent is that no harm is caused to the civilians being used by Hamas as human shields.
