The Israel Defense Forces’ Golani Brigade on Tuesday said it has captured Hamas Parliament in Gaza.

This gallant act however, symbolizes Hamas’s loss of control in the enclave, as reported by the Jerusalem Post.

The image of IDF operatives inside Gaza’s parliament building in Gaza City, after capturing the site, has gone viral on social media.

Earlier, the fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants outside Gaza’s largest hospital prompted thousands of people to flee from the sprawling medical facility, AP reported.

Though, hundreds of patients and others displaced by the war remained inside.

World Health Organisation Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus earlier, said that the UN agency was in contact with Shifa hospital, which he said had been without electricity and water for three days, and noted that gunfire and bombings outside the compound “have exacerbated the already critical circumstances.”

“Regrettably, the hospital is not functioning as a hospital anymore,” he said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Patients inside the hospital include dozens of babies at risk of dying because of a lack of electricity, health officials at the facility said.

More than two-thirds of Gaza’s population of 2.3 million have fled their homes since the war began.

Gaza City, the largest urban area in the territory, is the focus of Israel’s campaign to crush Hamas following the militant group’s deadly October 7 incursion into southern Israel that set off the war.
