KATHMANDU, Nov 20: The Israel Defense Force (IDF) has released a video showing Nepali nationals held hostage by Hamas. The video is from Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza.

According to the video shared by Israeli army on X (previously called Twitter), one Nepali and one Thai citizen are held hostage by Hamas.

In the video, one of the injured is seen lying on a hospital stretcher while another person wearing a sky blue T-shirt is being dragged. But their faces are not visible. People carrying weapons are also seen in the video.

IDF said they were Hamas "terrorists". Israel has also accused them of using Al-Shifa Hospital, the largest hospital in Gaza, to attack Israel.

IDF also released a video saying that a 55-meter long tunnel was found 10 meters below the hospital. It has been mentioned that the entrance of the tunnel is bullet proof. Hamas has been denying Israel's claim that there is a large network of tunnels and bunkers in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier, the body of a 19-year-old Israeli girl who was held hostage by Hamas was found near Al-Shifa Hospital. Although IDF has claimed that Hamas murdered her the Hamas said she was killed in an Israeli airstrike.
