Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) rushed to spread Hamas propaganda on Tuesday following allegations that Israeli forces attacked a hospital in Gaza.
The Hamas authorities reported on Tuesday afternoon claims An IDF airstrike hit Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza, killing over 500 people. The allegations sparked strong condemnation across the Arab world, although there was no evidence that Israel was responsible for the attack.
Tlaib and Omar quickly joined the chorus of those rebuking Israel.
- Tlaib: “Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital and killed 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, patients) just like that.” [President Biden] This is what happens when you refuse to facilitate a ceasefire and contribute to de-escalation. Their approach to war and destruction was eye-opening for me and many Palestinian Americans and Muslim Americans like me. We will remember where you stood.
- Omar: “Bombing a hospital is one of the worst war crimes. The IDF’s demolition of one of the few places where injured and injured people can receive medical care and shelter during a war is reportedly horrific.”
Your reaction, which continues to be published on X, appears to be a premature judgment that promoted Hamas propaganda.
The IDF fiercely disputed it was responsible for the explosion or the military had carried out air strikes in the area around the hospital. IDF officials said a failed rocket from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza hit the hospital. Not only Does video footage appear to show this? Just seconds before the hospital was hit, a crashed rocket fell back into the Gaza Strip, but the IDF released audio recordings of two Hamas employees Discussion about the failed rocket.

On the other hand, Hamas did not release any Evidence that the IDF was behind the attack. There is also no evidence of the number of victims claimed by Hamas.
As day broke over Gaza on Wednesday morning, Al-Ahli Arab Hospital was still standing.
Images from the crime scene prove that the hospital itself was not hit; Whatever projectile hit the hospital grounds actually hit a parking lot and a courtyard. There is little to no structural damage to buildings and, most importantly, there are no craters, which is almost certain evidence this IDF regulation was not responsible for the explosion.
