The Daily Mail reports:
Nearly 200 bodies have been found buried in a 'mass grave' at a Gaza hospital complex previously raided by Israel, officials have claimed.

Health workers so far have recovered 180 bodies of people killed and buried by Israeli forces in the courtyard at the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Yunis, Al Jazeera reported Sunday. Israel's military said it was checking the reports.

Mahmud Bassal, spokesman for Gaza's civil defence agency, alleged that some of those killed and buried at the hospital had been tortured.  
Hamas adds lurid details, claiming that there was evidence of torture and (impossible) organ theft, as well as patients shot at from behind and other quite unlikely stories. As usual, when Western news agencies rely on Hamas for their stories, they leave out the accusations that would indicate that the stories are fiction.  

There is other evidence that this is fake news, though. 

Earlier this year, there was another story about a mass grave in the Nasser hospital courtyard. This one was dug by Palestinians, as this January 28 report from NBC News says:
The head of Nasser Hospital in Gaza’s Khan Younis said 150 bodies were buried in the yard of the hospital after they started to decompose in the mortuary.

Could this be the same grave?  

The NBC video from the January burial show it was done in front of a building with a fairly distinctive decorative border around its windows.

The Al Jazeera story from today of this "new discovery" shows the building behind the grave also has the same color and that distinctive window (or door) border:

The Al Jazeera story today also inadvertently supports the idea that this grave "discovered" weeks after the IDF left is the same as the earlier one Palestinians themselves dug. 

A woman named Nawal al-Attal is interviewed. "I am here to find the body of my son," she says. "His name is Allah Salim Al Attal. His brother told me that he buried him here."

So her son admits that this was a Palestinian mass grave, not an Israeli one.

This is not definitive proof. The location could be different than the earlier grave. Maybe the hospital has two yards. But it does seem strange that a freshly dug gravesite adjacent to the hospital was not noticed for the two weeks since the IDF withdrew from the area. 

France24 says the IDF is checking the reports. 

UPDATE: As soon as I posted this, @ADX666 tweeted to me that an open source intel site had confirmed it is the exact same gravesite (webpage version here.)
