The US President, Joe Biden who was on a solidarity visit to Israel on Wednesday has backed the ally’s account that Palestinian militants caused a devastating hospital strike in Gaza, adding that Hamas had brought only suffering.

Biden said he was deeply saddened and outraged by the explosion at the hospital in Gaza yesterday.

Health authorities in Hamas-ruled Gaza said the explosion killed about 200 and 300 people and was caused by the latest in a wave of Israeli air strikes.

The Israeli military blamed Palestinian militants, saying an outgoing Islamic Jihad rocket misfired and that it would provide evidence.

In announcing Biden’s visit, the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken said that Israel had agreed to work with the United States on a plan to let aid into Gaza, which has been besieged and bombarded for 12 days and under an Israeli blockade for 16 years.

Israel is threatening a ground invasion following the devastating October 7 assault by Hamas militants.
