Israel’s President Denies Striking Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital


November 13, 2023

Israeli President Isaac Herzog has denied that Israel is striking Gaza’s largest hospital.

Reports from staff at Al-Shifa suggest the facility, sheltering thousands of Palestinians, has run out of electricity, but Mr Herzog said “everything is operating” at the hospital.

Speaking to newsmen, President Herzog also said a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf was found on the body of a Hamas fighter in northern Gaza, which according to him showed that some in Hamas “learned again and again Adolf Hitler’s ideology of hating the Jews”.

Mr Herzog said a copy of the Nazi leader’s antisemitic manifesto (first printed in 1925, and this time translated into Arabic) was found “just a few days ago” in a children’s room that had been “turned into a military operation base of Hamas”.
