Biden says Israel not to blame for Gaza hospital blast, cites data ‘shown by my defense department’

President Biden revealed Wednesday that data he has seen from the U.S. Department of Defense has made him sure that Israel is not to blame for a blast at a hospital in the Gaza Strip that has left hundreds of people dead. 

Biden said earlier that the explosion that rocked the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza City on Tuesday — which Hamas is claiming was the result of an Israeli airstrike – was “done by the other team.” 

When asked later Wednesday what made him so sure about that, Biden said “The data I was shown by my defense department.” 

President Biden arrived in Israel on Wednesday, where he held a brief press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 


Netanyahu continued: “I want to thank you for coming here today and for the unequivocal support you’ve given during these trying times. A support that reflects the overwhelming will of the American people. I’ve seen your support every day and the depth and breadth of cooperation that we have had since the beginning of this war, a level of cooperation that is truly unprecedented in the history of the great alliance between our two nations.”
