Israel shifts responsibility for Gaza hospital strike to Palestinian Islamic Jihad group
Israel denies carrying out a rocket attack on the Al-Maamadani hospital in the Gaza Strip, which led to numerous civilian casualties. According to the Israeli army, the hospital was hit by a rocket launched unsuccessfully by the Palestinian group "Islamic Jihad"* (a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation). This information was disseminated by the IDF press service.
The Israel Defense Forces says it has ruled out an Israeli missile hitting a hospital during strikes in central Gaza. The Israelis blame the incident on the Islamic Jihad group, which launched a missile that mistakenly hit the wrong target. The IDF says it has data that points to this.
After further verification and cross-examination of operational and intelligence systems, it is clear that the IDF did not strike the hospital in Gaza. The hospital was hit by a failed rocket launch by the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad*
