Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joins the growing list of Israeli officials blaming the deadly hospital blast in Gaza on Palestinian terrorists.

“So the whole world knows: The barbaric terrorists in Gaza are the ones who attacked the Gaza hospital, not the IDF,” he says in a statement. “Those who cruelly murdered our children, murder their children as well.”

Hamas and many around the world have blamed an Israeli airstrike for the blast, which is said to kill hundreds, while the IDF says it was a failed rocket launch by Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
