A journalist inside Al-Shifa hospital who I have been speaking to all week tells me he and many others have now left the premises, carrying white flags.
Earlier this week Khader Al Zaanoun spoke of heavy gunfire and interrogations as Israeli forces searched the site.
"The hospital was evacuated except for patients who could not move and a very small number of doctors," he tells me.
He said, "We raised our hands and carried white flags. Last night was very difficult. The sounds of explosions and gunfire was terrifying. The bulldozers created huge holes in the hospital yard and swept away some buildings".

Three days after Israel dropped leaflets to warn people to leave Khan Younis, another warning to evacuate the city has been issued.
The warning from an advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu
Khan Younis is the largest city in southern Gaza - where hundreds of thousands of people fled to after being told to evacuate the north.
As the humanitarian crisis is worsening in the packed city, Israel’s warnings suggested military operations there were imminent.
