An RPG and an anti-tank missile were fired at an IDF force from the entrance to the Al-Quds Hospital. The shooting was carried out by a terrorist squad that had assimilated into a group of civilians at the entrance to the hospital. The forces identified among the civilians a squad with two RPG launchers.
The IDF fired at the terrorists. During the exchange of fire, civilians were seen leaving the hospital and other terrorists who came out of buildings assimilated into them and joined the attack. After the RPG shooting by the terrorists, they went back to hiding in the hospital.
The forces of the combat team, which included engineering and infantry and with the assistance of the IAF, responded with fire towards the sources of the fire. About 21 terrorists were killed. There were no casualties to our forces.
This incident is an example of Hamas’ use of hospitals to shoot at the IDF.
