IDF troops eliminated terrorists around the area of the hospital

More than 100 Terrorists Arrested at Nasser Hospital

The IDF announced on Saturday morning, February 17, that they had arrested over 100 terrorists in Nasser Hospital during operations in the Gaza Strip, and that operations would continue for the foreseeable future.

Troops from the 98th Division operating in the Khan Yunis area arrested the terrorists in Nasser Hospital with the support of Shayetet 13 special forces embedded in the Division. Simultaneously, troops from the Maglan and Egoz units eliminated terrorists around the area of the hospital.

Troops from the 7th Armored Unit raided several terror targets and found significant amounts of combat equipment, including explosives, grenades, and rifles. In addition, the 98th Division identified three terrorists traveling to an area suspected of being a launch complex and directed an airstrike against them.

Israel has also updated families of Gaza hostages that the IDF found boxes with medicine, intended for their loved ones in Hamas captivity, at the Nasser Hospital. The names of hostages were written on the boxes with the medications, which appeared to have never reached the captives. The finding is being examined, the IDF said.

In a Thursday briefing, IDF Spokesperson R.-Adm. Daniel Hagari stated, “We have credible intelligence from a number of sources, including from released hostages, indicating that Hamas held hostages at the Nasser hospital in Khan Yunis and that there may be bodies of our hostages in the Nasser hospital facility.” (JPost / VFI News)

“God, we pray that You dismantle the Hamas terrorist organization and that until then, its operatives stop exploiting and endangering civilians and their infrastructure. We pray for an end to the war, as well as for the quick release of all the remaining hostages. May You keep them safe and strong amid the chaos.”
