Israel Confirms Misfired Rocket Causing Deadly Gaza Hospital Blast from Islamic Jihad

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Israel Defense Forces spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari held a news conference Wednesday morning to prove a deadly explosion at the Al Ahli Arab hospital in Gaza was caused by Palestinian terrorist group Islamic Jihad, not Israel.

In an attempt to demonstrate that Islamic Jihad was the source of the horrific explosion at the Al Ahli Arab Hospital, Israel Defense Forces spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari conducted a press conference on Wednesday morning.

After Tuesday night’s devastating explosion, which claimed the lives of at least 500 people, the IDF carried out an after-action evaluation with all pertinent branches, according to Hagari.

According to the analysis, around 6:15 p.m., Islamic Jihad launched about ten missiles approximately 45 minutes after Hamas fired a flurry of rockets toward Israel.

Islamic Jihad’s rocket misfired and crashed inside the hospital complex, according to Hagari.

He also mentioned that intelligence had apprehended two Hamas militants discussing the unsuccessful launch.

The two had a chat translated into English and made public by the IDF on Wednesday morning. When one of the two guys remarks, “They are saying it belongs to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” and that the shrapnel appears local rather than Israeli, he acknowledges the misfire.

Then, they discuss how the rockets were fired from a cemetery behind the hospital, as Hagari claimed the study had established using the trajectory analysis.

In addition, Hagari stated that since October 7, the IDF has tallied about 450 rockets that have malfunctioned and failed inside Gaza and that “Palestinians pay the price.”

According to Trey Yingst of Fox News, the Israelis have always denied carrying out the attack.

“The facts on the ground, what we can report, the Israelis have provided both drone evidence, they’ve provided images, videos, and they have provided intercepted phone calls to indicate this was an Islamic Jihad rocket that misfired,” Yingst stated.

Yingst pointed out that Hamas firmly believes that the Israelis are to blame for the hundreds of deaths in the hospital.

At least 4,200 people have been killed in the war on both sides, including at least 1,400 Israeli civilians and soldiers and 30 Americans.

Palestinian health authorities say at least 2,808 Palestinians have been killed and more than 10,950 wounded. 13 American citizens are unaccounted for.
