Throughout the operation in Gaza, the IDF has constantly presented proof of Hamas’s use of human shields and its firing of rockets from schools and hospitals.

Now, there is further proof, this time from a Finnish reporter who admitted to the camera that rockets were being fired from the Shifa hospital in Gaza.

The reporter, who was giving a report from the hospital, confirmed that a rocket had been fired towards Israel from the hospital parking lot.

“Really, it happened right in the area, the sound of it was really loud. It’s true that rockets are launched here from the Gazan side into Israel,” she said.

UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) at one point blamed Israel for a strike on the Shifa hospital, resulting in the deaths of over a dozen Gazans.

It was later revealed that in all likelihood, a misfired Hamas Fajr-5 Iranian-made 100kg warhead destined for Israel had struck the hospital.
