Speaking on Tuesday, US President Joe Biden said that a catastrophic explosion at a hospital in Gaza that claimed hundreds of lives was caused by a “errant rocket” launched by a “terrorist group”.
“Based on the information we’ve seen to date, it appears as a result of an errant rocket fired by a terrorist group in Gaza,” At the conclusion of a brief visit to express support for Israel following the Hamas strikes on October 7, Joe Biden informed reporters.
Faced with running out medical supplies, Gaza City’s doctors operated on severely injured patients on hospital floors, frequently without using anaesthesia, in a last-ditch effort to save lives lost in a massive explosion that killed civilians hiding in a hospital located nearby amid Israeli bombings and the siege of the area.
Although the Israeli military claimed that another Palestinian militant misfired a missile, the violent Hamas organisation attributed the explosion to an Israeli attack. According to the Health Ministry, which is controlled by Hamas, at least 500 people died.
As US President Joe Biden arrived in Israel on October 7 in an attempt to stem the flow of the conflict—which began on October 7 when Hamas terrorists assaulted towns and communities throughout southern Israel—rage over the hospital massacre swept across West Asia.
