Premature babies evacuated from Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital – BBC News

Thirty-one premature Palestinian babies have been evacuated from Gaza City’s al-Shifa hospital, the World Health Organization has said.

The babies have been taken to an Emirati hospital in the southern city of Rafah, close to the Egyptian border.

Hundreds of people, including patients, fled from al-Shifa on Saturday.

The hospital, which is the territory’s largest and most modern, is under the control of Israeli troops.

Israel has said Hamas has a command centre under the site – a claim Hamas has denied.

The Israeli military has released footage which it says shows a “55m-long terror tunnel, 10m deep underneath the Shifa hospital”.
