A synthesis of data available to the U.S. suggests that “Israel did not instigate the recent hospital explosion in Gaza,” a representative for the White House National Security Council declared on Wednesday.
This conclusion draws upon a comprehensive U.S. review of satellite imagery, communication intercepts, and publicly available data, conveyed NSC representative Adrienne Watson on a platform referred to as X. She underscored the ongoing efforts by the U.S. to gather more intelligence on this incident.
This communication aligns with the sentiments expressed by U.S. President Joe Biden in his discussions with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu during their rendezvous in Israel on Wednesday.
“From the intelligence I’ve reviewed, it seems the incident was perpetrated by the opposing side, not Israel,” Biden shared with Netanyahu in their interaction, acknowledging the widespread uncertainty surrounding the origins of the explosion.
