Gaza hospital chief admits he is Hamas, reveals terrorists use his hospital as a 'safe place' while civilians 'pay the price'

The head of Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza admitted he is a Hamas operative and that the terrorist organization used his hospital for military operations.

On Tuesday, Israel Defense Forces released an interrogation video of Ahmad Kahlot, the chief of the hospital, whom they presumably detained when IDF forces took control of the hospital last week. Kahlot identified himself as a senior Hamas official, holding the equivalent rank of a brigadier general, who joined the terrorist group in 2010 and underwent military training.

In the video, Kahlot told his Shin Bet interrogator why Hamas used the hospital he managed.

"Because for them the hospital is a safe place," he said. "They won't be targeted when they are in the hospital."

The admission confirms what American intelligence already knows: Hamas uses civilian infrastructure to protect itself, thus endangering civilians because the rules of war dictate that civilian infrastructure may be targeted once it is used for military purposes. Palestinian civilians, then, are Hamas' human shields who die because Hamas terrorists embed themselves in the civilian population.

Kahlot admitted that as many as 100 Hamas operatives operated out of his hospital, including at least 16 members of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas. They worked at the hospital as doctors, nurses, and clerks.

The hospital, Kahlot explained, was outfitted with areas to imprison hostages, offices for political leaders, and included space for "internal security and special security." He said Hamas used private telephone lines for communication.

Moreover, Kahlot confirmed that Hamas uses ambulances for military purposes.

"They have a private ambulance, even its color and the way it's painted are different, and it doesn't have a license plate," he explained. "They used it to transport the [hostages] and transport bodies. And they used it for other purposes that I don't know about, but I saw it come and go without taking out anyone that was injured."

In the end, Kahlot condemned Hamas operatives as "cowards" who hide in "secret places" while allowing civilians to "pay the price" for Hamas' terrorism.
