Israel: Misfiring Islamic Jihad rocket caused hospital blast

Israel’s military said on Wednesday it had seen no evidence of a direct hit on a hospital in the Gaza Strip the day before, where hundreds of Palestinians were killed in an explosion.

Israeli army spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari told journalists that there was no structural damage to buildings around the Al-Ahli al-Arabi hospital and no craters consistent with an air strike.

Hagari said he understood the blast was caused by a misfired Islamic Jihad rocket, but launched a ‘global media campaign’ to blame Israel.

He said aerial footage confirms there was no direct hit to the hospital itself and there was no damage to nearby buildings.

He said the only location damaged is the parking lot outside the hospital.
