Israeli army says it finished its operation in al-Shifa hospital

The Israeli army confirms that it has withdrawn from al-Shifa hospital and its vicinity in Gaza City, ending a two-week-long siege on the medical complex in which they claim to have killed and detained hundreds of Palestinian gunmen and seized weaponry and intelligence documents.

The army claims it conducted its raid without harming civilians and medical personnel, but the WHO says that 21 patients were killed during the siege. 

Gaza's civil defence said that around 300 people were killed during the raid.
