Hamas gunman captured by IDF troops taken to Beersheba hospital

A Hamas operative who was captured during the second day of ground operations in the Gaza Strip on Monday was taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba to be treated for his wounds. The man arrived at the hospital blindfolded and surrounded by Israeli security forces. He was quickly ushered past reporters and camermen and in through the front gate. Dozens of Hamas gunmen have been captured since the ground incursion began on Saturday, the IDF announced on Monday. However, only one was known to be treated at a civilian hospital in Israel for wounds sustained during the fighting.
