During Israel’s January incursion into Gaza, Hamas terror leaders hid in the cellars of Shifa Hospital in Gaza on the assumption that Israel would not bomb it.
Over the past two weeks, Hamas has set up a new command headquarters in one of the buildings in the yard of a psychiatric hospital in Gaza.
Hamas’ assumption is that Israel will not attack a building in such a sensitive compound.
Security sources confirm Hamas has relocated more than 50 key locations of its security forces. These are battalion, brigade and sector headquarters of the various security services. Each of the Hamas command headquarters were bombed in the course of Israel’s Gaza Operation. Now each of these headquarters have moved into public buildings that were not damaged, such as hospitals, schools, kindergartens and mosques.

Shifa Hospital, which was used as a shelter by some of the Hamas leadership in the course of the operation, has again been drafted for this purpose, with sections of the Shifa hospital now being used as offices for Hamas’ security services.
