A Hamas missile launcher misfired a rocket on Tuesday, which exploded over one of their hospitals and killed hundreds of Palestinians. The attack was initially blamed on Israel, but after thorough analysis and video evidence, it is clear that Hamas was the one that fired the rocket.
The Israel Defense Force released a statement regarding the matter, saying “Following an analysis by the IDF’s operational systems, a barrage of rockets was launched toward Israel, which passed in the vicinity of the hospital, when it was hit.”
“According to intelligence information from a number of sources we have, Islamic Jihad terrorist organization is responsible for the failed rocket launch that hit the hospital.”
Some reports claim that 30-40% of Hamas’ rockets misfire and land short in the Gaza Strip, which makes this misfire unsurprising and not unusual.
