President of the United States Joe Biden arrived in Israel on Wednesday and informed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that it looks that the attack on the al-Ahli hospital in Gaza on Tuesday night, in which hundreds are thought dead, was carried out by the “other team, not you.”
Biden added, “From what I’ve seen, it appears that it was done by the other team, not you.” “However, there are many people who are unsure. Therefore, we have a lot to overcome.
The act has left Biden “deeply saddened and outraged,” and he said, “The United States will continue to support Israel.” He did not back up his claims that Palestinian militants may have been responsible for the tragic blast.
Since Hamas started their brutal attack on Israel on October 7, which resulted in a significant Israeli response, the U.S. has backed Israel wholeheartedly. In an effort to prevent other parties from joining the conflict, Washington has dispatched two aircraft carriers to the area.
Biden said Netanyahu, “I’m looking forward to talking about what happens from here.
Netanyahu stated that “the civilized world must unite to defeat Hamas” and added that “we will defeat Hamas and remove this terrible threat from our lives.”
In response to a question from reporters asking why he thought Israel was not responsible for the hospital explosion, Biden said, “The data I was shown by my defense department.”
Later on Wednesday afternoon, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council added: “While we continue to gather information, our current assessment is that Israel is not responsible for the explosion at the hospital in Gaza yesterday based on analysis of overhead imagery, intercepts, and open source information.”
Game of blame
In an airstrike on the al-Ahli hospital in the northern Gaza Strip, where patients, medical personnel, and internally displaced residents were seeking refuge, hundreds of deaths are reportedly reported.
In the hours following the incident, the informational battle around the hospital explosion has also intensified. The hospital was damaged by a rocket that was accidentally fired by the Palestinian organization Islamic Jihad, according to the Israeli military, which quickly refuted Hamas’s claim that an Israeli air strike was to blame.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz demanded a “thorough investigation” into the attack on the hospital during a speech in Cairo, Egypt, earlier on Wednesday. He said that “we still do not know exactly what happened.”
More than a week after terrorists from the Palestinian organization surged out of the Gaza Strip and killed more than a thousand Israelis in a brutal attack, the catastrophic explosion occurs as the battle between Israel and Hamas intensifies.
Since then, Israel has retaliated by enforcing a stranglehold on Gaza, causing constant airstrikes in the area, and killing more than 3,000 Palestinians, according to officials in Gaza.
