Biden says Israel not to blame for rocket attack on Gaza hospital that left 500 dead: ‘Done by the other team’

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

In their remarks, both leaders highlighted the death toll, the atrocities committed by Hamas, and the impact on children in Israel.

Biden also said Israel was not to blame for a rocket attack on a hospital in Gaza, which left at least 500 people dead.

“I was outraged by the bombing of the hospital yesterday. Based on what I’ve seen, it was done by the other team. Not you,” Biden said to Netanyahu. “But there’s a lot of people out there who are not sure.”

The attack caused an international summit that was initially set for Wednesday to be canceled. It was going to feature Biden, Jordan’s Abdullah, Egypt’s Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The international community continues to press for information on what caused the explosion as attacks on hospitals, schools and other civilian targets are widely criticized.
