The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) declassified and released an intercepted phone call this week that showed Hamas pressuring a hospital to turn over its limited fuel supplies so that the terrorists could wage war against Israel.

The phone call — intercepted by the Israeli Military Intelligence — was between a Gazan resident, the deputy commander of Hamas’s Western Jabaliya Battalion, and the manager of the Indonesian Hospital.

The IDF said that intercepted audio “confirms that Hamas controls energy distribution in Gaza, prioritizing terrorist needs over the needs of their civilian population.”

The Gazan resident and the hospital director said that they were being pressured by Hamas’ Ministry of Finance to give 1,000 liters of fuel to the terrorists.

“For God’s sake, fill it up for [Hamas operative] now, people are pressuring us,” the resident told the hospital director. “And they’ll start shooting at us because they are pressuring us.”
