We reported yesterday that negotiations for a ‘temporary cessation of hostilities’ are underway between Israel and Hamas.
In the Gaza Strip, the war situation is becoming more and more intense.
Israel emphasized the legitimacy of the hospital airstrike by releasing a video of an underground tunnel, saying it was true that the hospital in the Gaza Strip was used as a command center for Hamas.

This is the Shifa Hospital Complex located in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
A drone equipped with a camera enters a hole in a pile of demolished building debris.
After going down for a while, you will come across a vertically curved tunnel.
This video was released by Israel, claiming that it is evidence that the hospital has been used as a command center for the Hamas military.
The Israeli military claimed to have discovered a terrorist tunnel 10 meters deep and 55 meters long, with various defensive measures installed at the entrance, including explosion-proof doors and shooting holes.
They also revealed that a vehicle loaded with numerous weapons, including explosives and firearms, was found in a warehouse at the hospital complex.
“The things here are weapons of war, like RPGs and Kalashnikov rifles. I came out from inside Al Shifa Hospital.″
They refuted the international community’s criticism of the hospital airstrike by releasing hospital CCTV, saying that Nepalese and Thai hostages had been taken.
Hamas said Israeli attacks had killed dozens of people in hospitals in the northern and southern Gaza Strip.
He then claimed that they had agreed to stop fighting in the Gaza Strip in exchange for the release of Israeli hostages.
On the other hand, Israel denied the content, saying there was no such agreement.
The Israeli military has been actively releasing related videos claiming the legitimacy of the recent hospital attack.
However, it is unclear how effective Israel’s public opinion campaign will be as attacks on hospitals continue to result in numerous civilian casualties.
