A blast occurred at Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza City. The Gaza health ministry said Wednesday that at least 471 people were killed.

Palestinian officials blamed the blast as an Israeli airstrike.

However, the Israel Defense Forces disputed this assertion, saying that it was caused by an errant rocket fired by the armed Palestinian faction Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

Late Tuesday, the IDF announced that it had reviewed available data and concluded that it was the result of an Islamic Jihad rocket aimed at Israel that misfired and fell to the ground in Gaza City.

Additionally, Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Daniel Hagari posted a video on his Twitter account of a radio discussion between Hamas operatives saying that failed rocket launch was done by the Islamic Jihad.

Attached is a recording of a conversation between Hamas operatives regarding the Islamic Jihad failed rocket launch on the hospital on October 17, 2023:

"According to our intelligence, Hamas checked reports and understood it was a Palestinian Islamic Jihad misfire, then launched a global media campaign with inflated numbers of casualties," the IDF spokesman said. "They understood with absolute certainty that it was a rocket launched by Palestinian Islamic Jihad."

American officials agree, saying that they have multiple strands of intelligence — including infrared satellite data — indicating that the blast was caused by a launch of a rocket or missile from Palestinian fighter positions within Gaza.

Curiously, Avi Schnall’s friend, Democrat Governor Phil Murphy mentioned the blast, but conspicuously failed to blame Hamas for blowing up the hospital.

Does he still believe Israel might have done it?
