Rep. Ilhan Omar walks back comments blaming Israel for Gaza hospital explosion, doesn’t offer apology

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., walked back her comments on social media blaming Israel for the explosion that occurred at a Gaza hospital but stopped short of offering an apology.

Many prominent progressives and members of the media rushed to believe Hamas’ claims that an Israeli airstrike was responsible for an attack on the hospital where hundreds of civilians were reportedly killed.

However, both the IDF and the Biden administration have debunked the terrorist group’s narrative, saying the explosion came from a misfired rocket from the Islamic Jihad. But not before it sparked international outcry with riots erupting in multiple countries.
