    The military presented CCTV footage of the hostages being brought into the hospital, under which Hamas has built terror infrastructure.

    IDF Spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said intelligence confirmed that Hamas terrorists “quickly” murdered Cpl. Noa Marciano at Shifa, after she was taken there with non-life-threatening injuries sustained during her captivity.

    In addition to Marciano, two hostages from Nepal and Thailand were hidden at Shifa Hospital in the immediate aftermath of the Oct. 7 massacre, said Hagari.

    “The evidence I will share was sent by Israel through diplomatic channels to the countries of these civilians…. Hamas was hiding hostages and murdering hostages inside Shifa Hospital. Hamas was building tunnels under hospitals.”

    Hagari proceeded to show footage of Hamas terrorists bringing two non-Israeli captives into the hospital by military jeep. “We have not yet located both of these hostages and rescued them,” he noted.

    “The world must remember: Hamas is holding hostage the elderly, men, women, children and babies. The Israel Defense Forces has a moral obligation to bring everyone home. We will not rest until we do,” added Hagari.

    Last week, Israeli forces entered Shifa to conduct what the IDF said was a “targeted” operation against Hamas. Troops found weapons, military technology and intelligence information in the compound. Photos of hostages captured by Hamas during its Oct. 7 massacre of 1,200 people in Israel were also found.

    In recent weeks, Israel has provided extensive evidence that Hamas uses hospitals, mosques, schools and other civilian sites for its terror warfare against Israel, and that the terror group has a command center in the tunnel system underneath Shifa.

    On Sunday, the IDF and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced that troops operating in Shifa Hospital discovered a 180-foot-long terror tunnel, buried over 30 feet underground.

    “The tunnel shaft was uncovered in the area of the hospital underneath a shed alongside a vehicle containing numerous weapons including RPGs, explosives, and Kalashnikov rifles,” said the Israeli army in a statement.

    According to the IDF, the entrance to the tunnel was outfitted with “various defense mechanisms” to prevent Israeli forces from entering, such as a blast door and a firing hole.

    So CNN, satisfied now?
    Enough evidence?
    Pentagon intel enough for you?
    Certainly more evidence than CNN had for 4 years against Trump.

    Sadly Israel is losing the PR war big time. They are over shooting their points. They promised an under ground Hamas commander center at Shifa. They even put out a video graphic depicting it. Showing a bunch of rifles in an MRI room and two hostages being brought into the hospital will not be enough to back up their claims. Failure to expose underground bunkers and command center as claimed will sadly weaken support for Israel. They must rethink their PR strategy quickly.

    Is there any evidence that any of the hostages are still alive?
