The White House on Tuesday said it had its own intelligence that Hamas was using Gaza’s Al-Shifa hospital to run its military operations, and probably to store weapons, saying those actions constituted a war crime.
“We have information that confirms that Hamas is using that particular hospital for a command and control mode” and probably to store weapons, national security spokesperson John Kirby told reporters aboard Air Force One. “That is a war crime.”
He said those actions by the Palestinian operative group did not lessen Israel’s responsibility to protect civilians.
