Israel has released an “intercepted telephone conversation” in which a Hamas member allegedly admitted that the terror group uses ambulances to transport terrorists and weapons. “I can choose which ambulance I leave with,” the man said in the conversation, which has not been independently verified. The news comes days after Palestinians accused the Israeli army of a targeted attack on an ambulance in Gaza City.
The Israeli army and the Shin Bet security service shared the audio clip on social media on Wednesday. In a conversation with a Gaza man, a Hamas member reportedly admitted that the terror group is misusing ambulances to carry out military operations. When the Gazan asks the terrorist if he needs an ambulance, the latter answers: “I can choose which ambulance I leave with. There are plenty of ambulances going back and forth here.”
It is not clear when the men called each other and what exactly they were talking about. The authenticity of the intercepted telephone conversation has also not been independently verified.
In addition to the conversation, Israel also made public fragments of the interrogations of several Hama terrorists involved in the bloody attack on October 7. During their interrogation, the men also admitted that Hamas uses ambulances for military purposes.
“Al-Qassam (the military branch of Hamas, ed.) has its own ambulances,” says one terrorist. “They look like civilian ambulances so they don’t arouse suspicion or be bombed by Israel.” Another Hamas member adds that the vehicles are used, among other things, “to evacuate fighters, commanders and agents.” “They also transport food and weapons,” it said.

Last Friday, the Gaza Health Ministry reported that 15 civilians had been killed in an Israeli attack on an ambulance near Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. More than twenty others were injured.
The Palestinians accused the Israeli army of deliberately attacking hospitals and ambulances to maximize civilian casualties. But Israel later claimed in a statement that the ambulance was not carrying civilians, but armed Hama terrorists.
The health ministry in turn responded that the ambulance was part of a convoy heading to the Rafah border crossing in the southern Gaza Strip. The Red Cross was also reportedly aware of this.
