Israel-Gaza war live updates Israel claims footage shows hostages at al-Shifa; Hamas says video is ‘in our favor’



Israel’s military on Sunday released footage of what it said was Hamas members “forcibly transporting hostages” through al-Shifa Hospital on Oct. 7, citing the video as proof that Hamas used the hospital “on the day of the massacre as terrorist infrastructure.” Hamas, in response, did not dispute that its hostages receive medical treatment and said some had been wounded by Israeli airstrikes. “Caring for prisoners … and offering necessary medical care are points in our favor,” a member of the Hamas political bureau said. The Washington Post could not independently verify when the videos were taken or who the people in them were. The medical director of the Indonesian Hospital in northern Gaza told The Post that there was a strike on the facility early Monday local time, followed by shooting in the direction of the hospital. Ten people were killed and five injured, he said. The media office of the Gaza Health Ministry later said that 12 people were dead. The Post could not independently verify the accounts, and the Israel Defense Forces did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
