Israel's military has released a video of what it claims is a fifty five-metre tunnel used by Hamas beneath Gaza's largest hospital.


The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) claim the footage, published on social media, is "more proof" that Hamas is using patients as "human shields".


The video, at al Shifa, begins with images of what is described as an "operational tunnel shaft", which looks like a circular hole in the ground.


The IDF said the shaft is said to drop ten metres, negotiated using a three-metre ladder and a spiral staircase for the other seven metres.


It added that at the bottom is a tunnel in two sections of five metres and fifty metres.
