The erroneous claim made by the Hamas Health Ministry on Tuesday that Israel bombed a hospital and murdered 500 Arabs was propagated by numerous major media sites.
It appears that a Hamas rocket launched the attack, which resulted in a parking lot being struck and not even a hospital.
Evidence that the explosion was not Israel-related and did not even hit the hospital was made public by the IDF. In actuality, the building appears to be unharmed in the damage images, with just the cars in the parking lot appearing to have suffered harm.
Israel also released a phone call tape of Hamas terrorists confessing that a missile fired by the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad was what caused the explosion.
In a later statement, U.S. Intelligence acknowledged having “satellite and other infrared data showing a launch of a rocket or missile from Palestinian fighter positions within Gaza.”
Additionally, President Biden acknowledged that the Palestinians, not the Israelis, were to blame for the explosion. According to the Daily Wire, some of the media outlets that pushed the fabrications from Hamas were:
According to authorities in the area, an Israeli airstrike that attacked a hospital in Gaza City claimed hundreds of lives, making it the bloodiest bombardment since October 7.
According to the AP, “Breaking: The Gaza Health Ministry says at least 500 people were killed in an explosion at a hospital that it claims was caused by an Israeli airstrike.”
According to Palestinian officials, hundreds were murdered in an Israeli attack on a hospital in Gaza. According to Reuters, “Hundreds killed in Israeli airstrike on Gaza hospital—health authorities”
According to Palestinian sources, an Israeli attack on a hospital in Gaza resulted in hundreds of deaths, as reported by the BBC. New York Times: “Israeli Strike Kills Hundreds in Hospital, Palestinians Say.”
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, both anti-Semites, falsely claimed that Israel bombed a hospital and killed patients in those tweets, and neither has since apologized or deleted them.
Tlaib wrote on Facebook, “Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital, killing 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, and patients) in an instant.” This is what happens when you refuse to help de-escalate the situation and facilitate a cease-fire, @POTUS. My eyes have been opened, as have the eyes of countless Palestinian Americans and Muslims in America. We will recall your position.
“Bombing a hospital is among the worst war crimes,” Omar wrote in a tweet. It is horrifying that the IDF allegedly bombed one of the few locations where the maimed and wounded can receive medical care and shelter during a battle. To put an end to this carnage, @POTUS must advocate for an urgent ceasefire.
