The charges that Israel attacked the hospital in Gaza have been widely refuted by President Isaac Herzog, who calls them “blood libel.”
He emphasizes the importance of hospitals as places where lives are saved in a tweet by pointing out that an Islamic Jihad missile was responsible for the casualties at a Gaza hospital.
In addition, Herzog attacks the media for promoting what he terms a “21st-century blood libel” by embracing the assertions of Islamic Jihad and Hamas.
He also criticizes the Gaza militants for harming innocent people on purpose.
President Herzog emphasizes that Israel is up against an opponent who is motivated only by evil, and he urges everyone to support Israel in its fight against this enemy.
