IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says reports of a possible Israeli airstrike against a hospital in Gaza are still under review.
Hagari says he does not have all the information yet, and further details will be provided when possible.
He says he does not know yet if the blast, reportedly causing hundreds of casualties, was an Israeli strike.
“There are a lot of airstrikes, a lot of failed rockets, and a lot of fake reports by Hamas,” he says.
A Channel 12 news reporter speculates that the blast was the result of a failed Hamas rocket launch, or that an ammunition store ignited. He notes that the Israel Air Force does not target hospitals.
