1. claims by the Israel Defense Forces

The Israel Defense Forces claimed that a hospital explosion in Gaza City was not caused by an Israeli airstrike. To support this, the IDF created and released a 30-second video. The video shows vehicles in the hospital parking lot catching fire, suggesting that the fire was caused by a failed rocket launch by the Islamic State jihadist group. The IDF added that there were no signs of craters or significant damage to buildings from the airstrike.

IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus told CNN that the “first packet of information” was “evidence that clearly supports the fact that it may not have been an Israeli bomb.” “There was no collateral or significant damage to neighboring buildings, no craters, and nothing resembling an Israeli bomb fall,” he added.

2. Palestinian reaction

The Palestinians have reacted strongly to Israel’s claims. The Islamic Jihad movement rebutted Israel’s claims in a statement, calling them “false and baseless.” They insist that they do not use public facilities such as hospitals for military purposes and deny Israeli claims that they were responsible for the failed rocket launch.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health also issued a statement, saying the hospital was sheltering thousands of victims at the time of the bombing, many of whom were under rubble.

3. Background on the case and the U.S. media’s take on it

CNN conducted an independent investigation into the incident, but was unable to determine the exact cause of the explosion at Al Ali Hospital. The case is tied to the complex situation in the Middle East, and with so many different claims and counter-claims, you can see that getting to the truth can be a challenge.

In conclusion, the Gaza City hospital explosion is still highly controversial. Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been heightened by the incident, and uncovering the truth is seen as crucial to peace and stability in the Middle East.
