Details: Hamas claimed that a US statement made earlier confirming that, as the Israelis say, a Hamas command post was indeed located under Shifa Hospital gave the Israeli forces the green light to storm the hospital.
Hamas denies using the hospital as a shield for its underground command and control centre.
Background: On 15 November, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) reported that, based on intelligence information and operational necessity, IDF forces have launched a precise and targeted operation against Hamas in a designated area in Shifa Hospital.
